Improving Countries’ GHG Measurement, Reporting & Verification methods

A joint project is underway to help countries improve the way they measure, report and verify greenhouse gas emissions from livestock. Each country currently has different methods of measuring, reporting and verifying (known colloquially as ‘MRV’).

The project is divided into four steps:

  1. Characterise international requirements for MRV
  2. Identify the approaches countries are currently taking
  3. Conduct a survey to identify the reasons for these approaches
  4. Make recommendations

It is hoped that a first draft of findings will be published in February 2017.

The joint project is being implemented by the Livestock Research Group of the Global Research Alliance and our Partners CGIAR’s Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), and the Food & Agriculture Organisation (FAO), with support from UNIQUE Forestry & Land Use, and the New Zealand Government.
