Event: Workshop on the "Mitigation Action Assessment Protocol (MAAP)"
Date: 9th March 2017 (Hanoi)
Conference Paper

IGES researchers explained about the World Bank's Networked Carbon Market Initiative, the concept and current status of the MAAP tool, as well as its application at pilot scale in some countries. In addition, on behalf of IGES and Department of Metrology, Hydrology and Climate Change (DMHCC) under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of Vietnam, IGES researchers also presented the preliminary assessment results of the MAAP application trail to 2 registered JCM projects. The results revealed that the projects have strengths in alignment with Vietnamese priorities, GHG estimation and calculation methodologies, baseline scenario estimation, and MRV plan. However, the JCM projects need to elaborate more on the responsibilities and authorities in project implementation, co-benefits, barriers for implementation, key performance indicators, and financial aspects of projects. The projects can also enhance their information by providing complementary documents on the applied technology and increasing engagement of Vietnamese project participants.
