MRV 101: Understanding measurement, reporting, and verification of climate change mitigation

Sadie Shelton

This working paper attempts to clarify the term “MRV” as it is used in the context of climate mitigation, by describing different types of MRV and how they differ from one another. The paper aims to disentangle the concept to make it easier for practitioners to understand which types of MRV are most relevant to them, which methodologies can be used for each type, who should perform the related activities, and how often.
