Designing MRV Systems for Entity-Level Greenhouse Gas Emissions Online Course
The course Designing MRV Systems for Entity-Level Greenhouse Gas Emissions is meant to support policymakers and practitioners in developing GHG reporting programs for collecting emissions data from entities.
WRI and the World Bank have collaborated to provide this course for policymakers and practitioners interested in measuring, reporting and verifying (MRV) emissions from entities. The course is based on the Guide for Designing Mandatory Greenhouse Gas Reporting Programs, and describes how to develop economy-wide or sector-specific GHG reporting programs addressing various national and sub-national priorities and objectives. GHG reporting programs provide a platform to gather emissions data from entities and help mainstream emissions measurement and reporting.
After completing the course, users will be able to:
- Understand what constitutes a GHG reporting program, and the range of objectives that reporting programs can serve
- Understand the legal framework needed to anchor the mandatory reporting program
- Determine the capacities necessary to establish and implement reporting programs
- Engage stakeholders during various phases of development and implementation of the reporting program
- Understand various design elements that form the core of GHG reporting programs and key factors that influence design-related decisions
- Delve deeper into three of the existing GHG reporting programs to further comprehend the concepts discussed in the course
Note: A facilitated version of this course will be available May 1-26, 2017. In the facilitated version, participants will be able to enhance their learning experience through an expert facilitator moderating the course and peer-to-peer learning. Register here for the facilitated course.
