Now available online: Webinar on MRV of Measures in the Transport Sector, highlighting the new Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring
How does GIZ systematically support capacity development on Measurement, Reporting & Verification (MRV) in transport? Which methodologies are available to set baselines and monitor emission reductions from transport? And what are the linkages between greenhouse gas (GHG) monitoring and reporting of measures and national transport GHG inventories?
The GIZ project Advancing Transport Climate Strategies funded by the German Environment Ministry (BMU) under the International Climate Initiative (ICI) hosted a webinar to discuss these questions by introducing two recent publications:
- The Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring – a comprehensive guide through existing methodologies GHG quantification of different types of transport mitigation actions.
- A paper titled Bottom-Up GHG Inventory and MRV of Measures – Synergies and Limitations in the Transport Sector.
The webinar can be viewed in full here.
Webinar viewers learn about the basic approach to GHG accounting in the transport sector and the scope of the Transport Volume. They receive an overview of the baseline and monitoring methodologies covered in the Transport Volume and get an idea how national GHG inventories are linked to MRV of measures.
Speakers included Urda Eichhorst, Transport and Climate Change Advisor at GIZ, Charles Kooshian, Transportation Policy Analyst at CCAP and Marion Vieweg-Mersmann, founder of Current Future.
