The key objective of MRV is to increase the “transparency of mitigation efforts made by the developing countries as well as build mutual confidence among all countries”. MRV is not a new concept, and it has been widely used in many contexts at the national and international levels to ensure transparency and help in effective implementation. This paper is divided into four main sections.

The first section discusses the context of MRV of developing-country mitigation actions and briefly summarizes the key elements of the MRV under the UNFCCC.

The second section explains the domestic MRV system that developing countries are expected to develop for MRV of NAMAs. This section focuses on the institutional, procedural and guidance elements of a domestic MRV system. The section also briefly discusses the MRV of internationally supported actions.

The third section focusses on explaining what is to be measured in context of NAMAs, the role of NAMA developer in MRV of NAMA, the information to be included in a NAMA measurement plan and reporting requirements. The section also describes different types of verification system and highlights the linkage between the scope and objective of the MRV system and verification.

The fourth section discusses the reporting of MRV information on NAMA implementation in BURs and discusses the format for aggregated presentation of information on NAMAs.
