2nd International Expert Workshop on Progressing in MRV of Transport NAMAs

MRV2On 20 May 2014, the GIZ-run TRANSfer project organised an international expert workshop aiming to advance the understanding of the opportunities and challenges of Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) in NAMAs taking into account the specific needs of host countries, capabilities and data availability in the transport sector. It further aimed at fleshing out the specific tasks of the working group identified in the 1st expert group meeting Towards Roadmaps for MRV of Transport NAMAswhich took place as a side event to COP 19 and Transport Day 2013 on 15 November 2013 in Warsaw. An important output of the first workshop was to structure the thinking around the three dimensions on (a) data, (b) analysis of impacts and (c) governance.

This workshop builds upon the workshop Towards Roadmaps for MRV of Transport NAMAs organized on 15 November 2013 as a side event to COP 19 and Transport Day 2013 in Warsaw and aims to further advance the work of the expert group established in Warsaw. The group of leading measurement reporting and verification (MRV) and transport sector experts already helped to kick-off the TRANSfer project’s work stream on supporting the development of MRV-systems in the transport sector. GIZ seeks to facilitate a process to create guidance for MRV of transport NAMA and link it closely with existing partnerships, initiatives and institutions. In addition to the expert group, three essential work areas have been identified:
a) Reference document on how to develop a national roadmap for transport MRV systems;
b) Set of peer-reviewed MRV blueprints for transport NAMAs;
c) Case studies of selected countries testing the “roadmap”
