Measurement Reporting and Verification (MRV) Resources Page

“MRV” stands for “measurement, reporting and verification,” which is United Nations-speak for making sure nations are doing what they say they’ll do in terms of addressing climate change. Robust MRV is fundamental to tracking progress on emissions reduction efforts, finance and other commitments, and to building trust among parties and ensuring environmental integrity. Finding a way forward on the development of a system that delivers reliable information in an equitable manner is lining up to be key to unlocking progress in the climate negotiations at COP 16 in Cancun and beyond. Without this kind of information and accountability, there is no way for governments or civil society to make sure the system is working, nor to know if total global GHG emissions reductions are sufficient to meet the the goal of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change to "prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with the climate system."
