Ethiopia-Measurement and Performance Tracking (MAPT) Initiative
"The MAPT project works to build national capacities in developing countries and major emerging economies to measure GHG emissions and track performance toward low-carbon development goals. Lessons learned are also being shared with international audiences in order to replicate successes and inform the design of relevant rules within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
WRI is partnering with a broad range of relevant stakeholders within the project countries, including government agencies, business, and civil society organizations. WRI’s engagement within each country is prioritized according to national capacity needs, which have been identified through scoping assessments conducted with in-country partners. MAPT is a four-year project funded primarily by the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and being carried out in partnership with key stakeholders in Brazil, Colombia, Ethiopia, India, South Africa, and Thailand.
For more information on the MAPT project contact the project manager, Kelly Levin at KLevin@wri.org. "
"MAPPING OF ETHIOPIA’S INSTITUTIONAL CAPACITY: ASSESSMENT OF KEY ACTORS AND MRV NEEDS OF CRGE
This assessment was conducted by Echnoserve under contract and guidance of the World Resources Institute. The objective was to identify and map out key institutional actors and their arrangements in the CRGE sectors and subsectors as well as assess MRV capacity and needs related to the CRGE. In addition the assignment looked at other MRV needs and plans such as the National Inventory (2nd National Communication), CDM and NAMAs."
This process is being made possible by a number of WRI supporters including the International Climate Initiative. The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.
