Tracking Climate Finance: What and How?
The aim of this paper is to highlight key questions that will impact how the international community counts financial flows (both public and private) towards the $100 bn long-term climate finance commitment, and discuss the resulting implications for tracking these flows. The scope of the paper includes both public and private financial flows in or to developing countries.
Measuring Reporting Verifying: A Primer on MRV for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions
This document provides insights on how MRV for NAMAs can be performed and identifies elements and drivers to be considered when designing adequate MRV systems for NAMAs in developing countries. This primer is the second contribution in the emerging area of NAMAs and MRV. It is complemented by a recent publication on Low Carbon Development Strategies and NAMAs.
