Actions May 5, 2017 2:37 pm

The GIZ project Advancing Transport Climate Strategies, funded by the German Environment Ministry under the International Climate Initiative, is hosting a webinar – “MRV of Measures in the Transport Sector – new Volume of the Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring” – on Wednesday, 10 May 2017, 1 – 2:30 pm CET.

Urda Eichhorst, Transport and Climate Change Advisor at GIZ, will provide the background on the development of the newest volume of the newest volume of the Compendium on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Baselines and Monitoring – the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume – and briefly reflect on the portfolio of assistance provided through German development cooperation in order to assist countries in identifying effective transport mitigation measures and monitoring their effects. Charles Kooshian, Transportation Policy Analyst at the Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) will present the scope of the Passenger and Freight Transport Volume, and provide examples for baseline and monitoring methodologies from the publication. Additionally, Marion Vieweg-Mersmann, Current Future, will explain the linkages between GHG monitoring, reporting of measures and national transport GHG inventories. Discussion and question from participants is welcome.

Those from government agencies, consultants, think-tanks and international cooperation organisations that want to calculate emission reductions from transport mitigation actions are encouraged to join.

The Compendium on GHG Baselines and Monitoring is a UNFCCC coordinated, multi-stakeholder effort to provide a resource map of methodologies, methods and tools for establishing baselines and monitoring emissions reductions from mitigation actions. The Compendium covers methodologies in all IPCC sectors.

On 09 May 2017, during the Technical Expert Meeting in Bonn, Germany, the newest volume of the UNFCCC coordinated Compendium on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Baselines and Monitoring will be officially launched. The Transport Volume was coordinated by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in cooperation with the UNFCCC Secretariat and the Partnership on Sustainable Low Carbon Transport (SloCaT), with funding from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), and written with the assistance of the Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) with contributions from the International Council on Clean Transportation (ICCT) and included a wide-ranging expert review.
