Latin American & Caribbean Regional Workshop on 'MRV of NAMAs as a Key Element of National MRV Systems'

More than 100 stakeholders from 10 countries came together from 6-8 March in Mexico City to exchange good practice cases and enhance capacities for the development of systems for the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Summer School on 'Tracking Progress and MRV for Greenhouse Gas Emission Reductions', Viet Nam, August 2013

This year’s Summer School of the International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV is currently taking place in Viet Nam from 20 to 28 August 2013. It focuses on issues regarding the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of greenhouse gas emission reductions and the tracking of domestic and global mitigation progress.


Rendering emission reductions measurable, reportable and verifiable is essential to increase transparency and trust in the international climate regime.


Low-Emission Development Strategies and Plans are a tool which enables states to formulate integrated, strategic responses to climate change mitigation and adaptation, while pursuing sustainable development goals.


Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions are a chance for instant common action on mitigation while following a sovereign and unique path of development.

The project is conducting a baseline study as a basis for the introduction of a carbon exchange for the construction sector.
During the negotiations at the nineteenth Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the joint Germany-UK NAMA Facility announced the funding of the NAMA “Implementation of the Sustainable Urban Transport Program Indonesia”.
This past November, the joint Germany-UK NAMA Facility chose Colombia’s transit-oriented development (TOD) nationally appropriate mitigation action (NAMA) to be one of its four recently funded NAMAs, making it the first of its kind of be funded internationally.
The Vietnamese Government has started a project supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB). For the next four years, it will contribute to develop and implement several sectoral nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) and a national NAMA measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) system.

The Indian Government has made a voluntary international commitment to reduce the emissions intensity of its gross domestic product (GDP) by 20–25 percent from 2005 levels by 2020. Domestically, India’s National Action Plan on Climate Change (NAPCC) includes eight national missions to support areas such as energy efficiency and solar energy. This paper provides an overview of these and other existing national policies, as well as policies under development, that are likely to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in India

This report presents a synthesis of the results of scoping research carried out under the MAPT project in 2011 in six developing countries—Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia, India, South Africa, and Thailand.1 The information has been supplemented with research conducted since the scoping reports were first conducted, but the foundation of the research is from the initial scoping research conducted by in-country partners. Therefore, some advances may have occurred since the initial research was conducted.

The Stock Tacking Tool is an analytical tool to support identification of prioritized action for national MRV systems including LEDS and NAMAs. It aims to aid developing countries in carrying out a stock taking to helping them assess the current ability of their national systems related to Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS), Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) as well as monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) to create transparency and an information basis for planning and implementing mitigation actions, and to comply with the UNFCCC requirements, e.g. to generate a Biennial Update Report (BUR).
