Webinar on measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) of nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMA) in the waste sector

1 Jul 2014

Measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) of nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) is important for many reasons. Firstly, MRV supports tracking and reporting on the impact of NAMAs on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Secondly, MRV supports sustainable development and poverty reduction. And lastly, MRV helps to ensure transparency and credibility, and to track accountability.
Although some aspects of MRV will be common across all sectors, each sector also has its own specific complexities. In this context, UNDP’s Low-Emission Capacity Building Programme held a series of webinars to explore sector specifics, and support governments and other stakeholders with MRV tasks and activities.

In this 60-minute webinar, led by ESCAP, participants heard from a range of international agencies in support of MRV in the waste sector. The webinar drew on experiences gathered during an earlier regional meeting in Thailand over March 2014, as well as experiences from developing countries.

The webinar included three presentations, as outlined below:
• Key Considerations for MRV of Waste NAMAs by ESCAP
• MRV Design for Vietnam’s Waste NAMA by the Institute of Meteorology, Hydrology and the Environment, Vietnam
• Uganda’s Integrated Waste Water Treatment NAMA by ENR Africa Centre
