This handbook aims to inform researchers and policymakers engaged or interested in the development and implementation of MRV (monitoring, reporting, and verification) for rice paddy water management. It provides some basic information about MRV methodologies but focuses on quantifying GHG emissions and reductions, and includes updates on evolving issues. It can also be applied to other rice-related MRV methodologies but is primarily geared toward water management of irrigated rice paddies.
