The MRV Platform for Agriculture is an online platform of tools, approaches, and case studies for MRV of GHG emissions and mitigation actions in the agriculture sector. This platform provides information to guide the technical and institutional design of MRV systems for agricultural mitigation actions, including those outlined in Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) goals.

The platform initially focused on MRV resources specific to livestock but has since expanded to include resources for rice and agroforestry. We seek to accommodate more information on MRV over time.

A sister site, Standard Assessment of Agricultural Mitigation Potential and Livelihoods (SAMPLES), can be found under the Knowledge Portal tab in the menu. It is home to emission factors and associated metadata from greenhouse gas measurements in agricultural systems as well as related publications and news. SAMPLES scientists work with developing countries to improve data on agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation potentials.
