Measuring, Reporting & Verification
Wednesday, February 5, 2014 9:00:00 AM CST - 10:00:00 AM CST
Measuring, Reporting & Verification (MRV) is taking an increasingly important role in the on-going climate negotiations, especially in the context of new instruments like NAMAs.

The goal of MRV systems is to develop a framework for evaluation that is consistent, systematic and transparent. While emission reductions can be easily quantified, MRV systems may require other quantitative or qualitative metrics in line with a country’s overall sustainability goals.

This webinar, the third in a series organized jointly by UNDP through its MDG Carbon Programme and the World Bank Institute Climate Change (WBICC) Practice, will provide an overview of how MRV of new instruments can build on lessons learned from existing standards. Additionally, a qualitative metrics that accounts for a country’s overall sustainability goals beyond emission reductions will also be presented in this webinar.

The lessons learned in this webinar include possible MRV approaches for new instruments, which includes data collection and the process of reporting of assessment results according to established quantification standards and additional qualitative metrics for sustainability parameters.
