Q&As about MRV
Questions & answers on MRV
The diagram below presents our two-step approach in this book. Step 1 provides you with questions and answers for understanding the ‘why’, ‘what’, ‘how’, ‘who’, ‘how often’, etc. for existing MRV schemes. Based on this understanding of the overall picture of MRV, Step 2 introduces selected good practices to help developing countries overcome their common challenges.
The two steps in this guidebook
The one hundred and more Q&As are comprised of around four thematic elements as follows:
Structure of questions & answers
Good practices – lessons from Asia
Once you can grasp the overall picture of MRV, it is important to get an idea of how challenges may occur, in the course of practicing MRV, as well as what kinds of challenges may occur in the context of developing countries. Note that such challenges may also be common to some developed countries. We identified the six challenges that the majority of developing countries are likely to face when they practice MRV schemes, as listed below.
Good practices and the six common challenges
We introduce good practices to address each or a combination of these challenges. This is based on our experiences working in and with some developing countries in Asia and other regions. We could not provide examples of good practices for all of the challenges. We believe that a good practice derived from a particular MRV scheme can also be applied to other MRV schemes. We also intend to increase the examples of good practices in subsequent editions of this book.
