Handbook on Measurement, Reporting and Verification for developing country parties

Sadie Shelton

The relevant requirements issued by the Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC on the MRV framework are scattered over multiple COP decisions, making it difficult to follow all of the requirements. This handbook provides an overview of the full package of decisions adopted in the international negotiations concerning measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) provisions for developing countries under the UNFCCC (using BURs, ICA, NAMAs, TA, FSV, SBI, etc.). Note that the handbook was published prior to COP21, so does not cover emerging requirements under the Paris Agreement.
