Joint UNDP MDG Carbon Program and The World Bank Institute Climate Change Practice Webinar
February 5, 2014 at 10:00AM EDT
Measuring, Reporting & Verification (MRV) is taking an increasingly important role in the on-going climate negotiations, especially in the context of new instruments like NAMAs.
The goal of MRV systems is to develop a framework for evaluation that is consistent, systematic and transparent. While emission reductions can be easily quantified, MRV systems may require other quantitative or qualitative metrics in line with a country’s overall sustainability goals.
This webinar, the third in a series organized jointly by UNDP through its MDG Carbon Programme and the World Bank Institute Climate Change (WBICC) Practice, will provide an overview of how MRV of new instruments can build on lessons learned from existing standards. Additionally, a qualitative metrics that accounts for a country’s overall sustainability goals beyond emission reductions will also be presented in this webinar.
The lessons learned in this webinar include possible MRV approaches for new instruments, which includes data collection and the process of reporting of assessment results according to established quantification standards and additional qualitative metrics for sustainability parameters.

LEDS African Climate and Development Society (ADC-Soc) Green Growth Workshops
Date and Location to be Determined
The African Climate and Development Society is pleased to announce its second regional workshop to be held in the Democratic Republic of Congo on 4-6 Feb, 2014. The workshop will be hosted in collaboration with the Green Growth Knowledge Platform.
The first day will focus on framing of climate resilient low emissions development and the structure, scope, and objectives for the African Climate and Development Society (ACD-Soc).
Day 2 will open the discussion on key issues, focus on exploring the concept of Green Growth in an African context and showcase the relevance of Green Growth to Africa. In the afternoon participants will focus on the specific challenges faced by African countries.
During Day 3, parallel sessions will be held to discuss a wide range of topics including linkages between adaptation and mitigation, linkages of national and subnational governance, climate resilient development tools, among others.
