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.
In 2018, the platform focused on MRV resources specific to livestock but rice and agroforestry were added in 2019. Resources for nutrient management and soil organic carbon will be added in 2021. More MRV resources for other agricultural sectors and cross-cutting issues will continue to be added 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.
