UNDP is proud to contribute to the 4th part of the joint webinar series of the UNFCCC Secretariat and GIZ on Methodologies for GHG Baselines and Monitoring in the Transport Sector. The series comprises eight webinars and is based on the chapters of the UNFCCC Secretariat’s Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring (2nd updated version).
Join us for episode 4 of the series on 16 April 2018, at 10 am (UTC+2) German time on how to MRV vehicle efficiency interventions. William Kojo Agyemang-Bonsu (Manager, Mitigation and Transparency Support, UNFCCC) will give an introduction to the Transport Volume of the UNFCCC's Baseline Compendium and present core indicators for setting GHG baselines and monitoring emission reductions from vehicle efficiency measures. Then, Manpreet Singh (Director, Advisory, Climate Change & Sustainability Services, KPMG India) will illustrate the methodological approach with the example of a UNDP-led electric Bus Rapid Transit NAMA proposal in Sri Lanka.
After the presentations, there will be time for questions and answers. Anything you have always wanted to know regarding emissions accounting of vehicle efficiency interventions? Ask us during the Q&A!
Further information on the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume
On 09 May 2017, during the UNFCCC´s 46th session of the Subsidiary Bodies in Bonn, the publication of the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume of the UNFCCC’s Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring was officially launched. The Transport Volume is a multi-stakeholder effort to provide a resource map of methodologies and tools for establishing baselines and monitoring emissions reductions from mitigation actions. It covers more than 30 methodologies and tools, which are structured into eight different mitigation action types.
The transport volume was coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in cooperation with the UNFCCC Secretariat and the Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SloCaT) and funded through the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety BMUB. It was written with the assistance of the Center for Clean Air Policy with contributions from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and INFRAS.
