This content overview helps you nagivate through the toolkit.
The first section introduces the basic concepts and key principles of measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of greenhouse gas (GHG) mitigation measures.
In order for a MRV process to be successfully implemented, in the first phase practitioners need to analyze the scope and effects of the mitigation action, assess the transport data available as well as set the boundaries for the analysis. This module thus aims at providing the necessary guidelines for the success of the first phase of the MRV process such as guidelines on the calculation of emissions inventories in the transport sector.
Step 1: Identify main effects of mitigation action
The scope of the mitigation action as well as its effects are identified. Concluding key indicators to track GHG emissions and effects on transport activities are derived.
Step 2: Assess data availability/gaps
Checking for institutionalised data (e.g. statistics), other available data sources (e.g. research, development aid projects) and determining the data to be collected.
Step 3: Define boundaries for analysis
This module provides project managers with the relevant knowledge and methodologies to develop baseline scenarios and equips practitioners with models to calculate GHG emissions and approaches to develop a data collection plan.
Step 4: Develop baseline scenario (and ex-ante mitigation scenario)
Step 5: Set-up model to calculate emissions
Step 6: Develop data collection plan
Monitoring is a crucial part of the MRV process. This module aims at overcoming challenges in monitoring by giving guidance on various monitoring options and providing tools for the reporting of GHG emissions.
Step 7: Collect data (measure)
Step 8: Calculate emission reductions
Step 9: Report and verify
This section includes series of webinars, tutorials and guidebooks for various methodologies and tools within the MRV process.
Finally, this section contains a diverse collection of case studies compiled from specific mitigation measures from different regions.
