Harmonizing greenhouse gas accounting for NDC tracking: Webinar and related resources

11am, July 19th, 2018

This webinar provides a framework for bridging the monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) gap between national inventories and project-level mitigation activities to track progress toward Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) targets.

Effective measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of emissions and emissions reductions is critical to help countries understand greenhouse gas sources and trends, design mitigation strategies, enhance credibility, and take other policy actions. In this webinar, the Resources to Advance LEDS Implementation (RALI) team present the greenhouse gas MRV Framework, which provides a step-by-step approach to harmonizing mitigation MRV efforts with emissions tracking at the national level, along with key considerations for enhanced transparency.

The webinar addresses the following questions:

  • How can countries ensure that mitigation successes are reflected in national inventories and NDC tracking?
  • Why is it critical to harmonize MRV of mitigation actions and national inventories?
  • What was Colombia‚Äôs experience in harmonizing greenhouse gas MRV and what lessons can participants take to apply in their own countries?
