Reference document on Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) in the transport sector
How to assess the impact of transport based mitigation efforts? Where to find good measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) practices and what requirements must be met in terms of data collection? The recently published Reference Document on MRV in the transport sector informs on how to develop comprehensive and consistent national systems for MRV of transport related emissions. This report builds on the work of the TRANSfer MRV Expert Group and it benefitted greatly from their valuable comments and inputs. It gives advice on good MRV practices and addresses especially developers of National Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in transport systems and policy makers in developing countries. Therefore, it contributes to the UNFCCC Nama Partnerhship. Key issues are: Reporting of transport emissions (as part of GHG inventories); Tracking the level of achievement of national, regional or city level mitigation goals; and Accounting of effects of NAMAs. It further explains approaches and key parameters for transport sector related MRV. Interested?
