Analytical Note, May 2008
¨Measurable, Reportable and Verifiable¨: Using the UNFCCC’s Existing MRV Mechanisms in the Context of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long Term Cooperative Action Under the Convention.
This South Centre Analytical Note suggests that the modalities for the “measurable, reportable, and verifiable” (MRV) conditions under operative paragraph 1(b)(i) and (ii) of the Bali Action Plan should be the existing MRV modalities with respect to mitigation commitments, financing, technology transfer, and capacity-building under the Convention.
There is no need to reinvent the MRV wheel in the context of the intergovernmental processes under the Ad hoc Working Group on Long Term Cooperative Action under the Convention (AWG-LCA). Such MRV modalities already exist under the Convention and the Kyoto Protocol and the focus should therefore be on using and further strengthening such modalities.
