Q&As about MRV
Guide to Q&As
This is the online version of a print guidebook titled “One Hundred Questions and Answers about MRV in Developing Countries.” It is designed to help you better understand the existing Measuring, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) schemes for greenhouse gases in developing countries.
If you are interested in a particular scheme, we have questions about each of the following:
- National Communications
- Biennial Update Reports
- National GHG Inventories
- Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions
- City-scale GHG Inventories
- Clean Development Mechanism
- Joint Crediting Mechanism
We have also categorized the questions by type:
- Basic: why and what is it about?
- Technical: how to do it?
- Institution: who will do it?
- Support: what kind of support is available?
In addition, we have listed “Good Practices” by scheme to showcase the practices of MRV that address common challenges in developing countries.
There are more than 100 questions in this guide, and we will continue to update it as more information becomes available. Please help us to improve this guide; send us your own questions.
IGES and other MRV experts developed this online tool with financial support from the Ministry of the Environment, Japan.
