MRV for transparency is an important foundation for policy-making within the framework of the Paris Agreement, one which also applies at subnational levels. The project supports state governments in Brazil (Pernambuco), India (Chhattisgarh, West Bengal), Mexico (Baja California, Yucatán and Jalisco) and South Africa (KwaZulu-Natal) in closing MRV capacity gaps and implementing climate change mitigation measures. Offering technical support to the regions for the development of sustainable MRV systems, it identifies further mitigation potential and supports its implementation. The project also organises cross-national dialogues between national, subnational and local governments to achieve the vertical integration of climate protection measures. The network of the “Under2 Coalition” is used to disseminate the experiences gained.
