Synchronizing Bottom-Up and Top-Down Approaches
Most developing countries are currently facing the challenge of developing national systems for Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV). While in most countries, first experiences with implementing MRV systems for individual mitigation actions (e.g. NAMAs) exists, along with the upper layer of national emissions reporting, experience with setting up integrated bottom-up and top-down national MRV systems is limited.
This Webinar will showcase the difference between these two approaches, highlight potential strengths and weaknesses and discuss ways to link or synchronize them. The webinar is primarily directed at stakeholders involved in designing and implementing MRV systems for NDCs or mitigation actions.
