IGES publication: Guidebook for MRV in Developing Countries

The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES) has recently published the COP21 version of “One Hundred Questions and Answers about MRV in Developing Countries“.

The unique approach – questions and answers – gives an easy-to-understand guide to MRV for the following various schemes and mechanisms:
– National Communications
– Biennial Update Reports
– National GHG Inventories
– MRV for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs)
– City-scale GHG Inventories
– MRV for the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM)
– MRV for the Joint Crediting Mechanism (JCM)
Experts in this field prepare one hundred and more Q&As based on the outcome of recent international negotiation and development of each scheme or new mechanism, such as the JCM. The COP21 version newly includes “MRV for NAMAs”.
