Over 100 countries indicated their intention to reduce GHG emissions from the agriculture sector in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Credible measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of emissions and emissions reductions is critical to help national policymakers understand sources of GHGs, develop mitigation strategies, improve transparency, and access climate finance.
This MRV Platform contains tools, approaches, and case studies for MRV of GHG emissions and mitigation actions in the agriculture sector. The platform initially focuses on MRV resources specific to livestock but will accommodate MRV for other agricultural sectors and cross-cutting issues over time. Tools and approaches for MRV of GHG emissions and mitigation actions specific for agroforestry and rice are currently being added to the resource library. This platform is intended to provide useful 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 NDCs.
We welcome comments and feedback from MRV and GHG inventory experts, practitioners, and policy-makers.
