|3. Mitigation Programs and Key Issues for the Consideration for Scaled-up Crediting Mechanisms|
The case study from Indonesia highlighted i) the potential and challenges for scaling-up mitigation; ii) the contribution of carbon revenues in the overall financing; and iii) the associated policy and regulatory framework needs as well as institutional considerations. The presentations also discussed issues and options for setting a boundary, baseline, and MRV.

|Elements of Scaled-up Crediting Instruments
The case study from Mexico showed how a sustainable development policy aimed at housing can be developed as a mitigation program for a scaled-up crediting mechanism. It has a particular focus on MRV issues associated with many dispersed units and several mitigation technologies, coordination and institutional responsibilities for the program, and financing.

This presentation explored options for grouping multiple sectors into one mitigation program aimed at enabling action in a sub-national jurisdiction (e.g., a city). It also included different approaches to engage with municipal authorities at the sub-national or national level and the advantages and challenges of addressing multiple sectors in a single program.
