3rd meeting of the International MRV Expert Group in Bonn
How to refine and scale up MRV blueprints was one of the main questions during the 3rd meeting of the international MRV expert group on March 20th 2015. The MRV expert group of the TRANSfer project was established in 2014 with the aim to further the understanding of Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of transport NAMAs and to support the development of MRV methodologies and MRV guidance for transport activities.
It is the explicit aim of TRANSfer to develop a common understanding of elements and structure of an MRV system for transport and MRV methodologies for NAMAs across the members of the MRV expert group.
The workshop’s thematic focus was to discuss draft MRV blueprints and how they can be put to best use to foster low carbon sustainable transport interventions. Prior to the workshop, MRV blueprints for transport NAMAs were conceptualised as detailed step-by-step documentations of MRV methodologies for specific transport NAMAs, each exemplified by a case study.
Aims of the workshop were:
1. To agree on a common structure and contents for MRV blueprints for transport NAMAs based on the presentation of three cases.
2. To collect ideas on the potential and possibilities to scale-up MRV blueprint development.
