Project context, objectives and description

To meet the reporting obligations under the UNFCCC as well as the enhanced transparency framework (ETF) of the Paris Agreement, all countries have agreed to provide emission data and track progress against their contributions to climate actions. Embedding effective and accurate greenhouse gas (GHG) monitoring (measurement), reporting and verification (MRV) system is fundamental in complying to this agreement as it provides reliable, detailed data for target setting and tracking progress. Against this backdrop, partner governments plan to develop an integrated national MRV system with the technical assistance from GGGI. This project especially supports the Ministry of Water and Environment (MWE) of Uganda, the Ministry of Environment and Tourism (MET) of Mongolia, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation (MONREC) of Myanmar, and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MONRE) of Lao PDR. 

The objectives of this project are: 

  • The governments identify its major GHG emitting sectors completely and comprehensively. This will provide with reliable data per sectors with high mitigation potentials, setting sector-specific baselines as a reference point for establishing future mitigation objectives and priorities. 
  • The governments identify mitigation and adaptation areas to facilitate leveraging green investment for the NDC implementation. This entails identifying the appropriate MRV requirements for assessing its capacity development needs, identifying the required climate finance needed, and accurately measuring, reporting, and verifying its NDC components.
