As of: June 2020

Objective and activities

The aim of the program is providing policymakers and stakeholders of an initial set of up to 20 developing countries with MRV related tools/methodologies to support the development of domestic MRV systems tailored to country circumstances. The program consists of 1) Development of a MRV-Framework related to GHG reduction, sustainable development and transformational impacts of climate policies and actions; 2) MRV Capacity Building to strengthen domestic MRV systems and build on national institutional arrangements. The MRV Trust Fund is designed to finance activities at national, regional, and global levels that will make immediate and long-term, direct and indirect impacts and result in sustainable improvements of the administrative, legislative and institutional MRV-infrastructure within countries. The Initiative is financed by the MRV Trust Fund. The MRV Trust Fund is supported with allocation of funds by the BMU and administered by UNOPS.
