MRV Platform for Agriculture

New MRV Platform houses tools, approaches, & case studies to support accounting for emissions and mitigation in the livestock sector


Over 100 countries indicated their intention to reduce GHG emissions from the agriculture sector in their Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs). Credible measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of emissions and emissions reductions is critical to help national policymakers understand sources of GHGs, develop mitigation strategies, improve transparency, and access climate finance.

The MRV Platform for Agriculture contains tools, approaches, and case studies for MRV of GHG emissions and mitigation actions in the agriculture sector. The platform initially focuses on MRV resources specific to livestock, but will accommodate MRV for other agricultural sectors and cross-cutting issues over time.

It is intended that this platform provide useful information to guide the technical and institutional design of MRV systems for agricultural mitigation actions, including those outlined in Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) and NDCs.

This MRV Platform for Agriculture is an initiative of the Global Research Alliance for Agricultural Greenhouse Gases (GRA) and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), implemented in partnership with UNIQUE forestry and land use GmbH and the New Zealand Agricultural Greenhouse Gas Research Centre (NZAGRC).  Web design is by Clutch Creative. Funding was provided by the New Zealand Government as an activity of the GRA.
