MRV in states and regions of developing and newly industrialized countries

As of: February 2019

Objective and activities

The project supports subnational governments in Mexico (Baja California, Yucatán, and Jalisco), India (Chhattisgarh, Telangana), Brazil (Pernambuco) and South Africa (KwaZulu-Natal) to contribute to NDCs by overcoming MRV capacity gaps. The regions are at different stages in the MRV process, with variable levels of knowledge on GHG inventories, completeness of existing inventories and implementation of systems for the MRV of mitigation actions. The project will thus provide regions with tailored technical assistance to establish sustainable and robust MRV systems. The project will also identify further mitigation opportunities and support their implementation. In-country multi-governance policy and strategy dialogues between national governments, sub-national governments and selected local governments will be organized to promote vertical integration of climate action. The Under2 Coalition network will be leveraged to disseminate lessons learned between states and regions globally.
