Guidance for setting up and enhancing national technical teams for GHG inventories in developing countries
In a step-by-step process, this guide aims to assist developing countries in meeting a significant part of their reporting requirements to the UNFCCC, i.e. the national GHG inventory, by setting up or enhancing national technical teams for the preparation and reporting of GHG inventories on a regular basis within a national system of GHG inventories. Besides the step-by-step process, this paper provides additional guidance on strategies to support the sustainability of technical teams for GHG inventories.
BUR Process Guidance Tool
The BUR Process Guidance Tool has been developed to support countries in the process of preparing a BUR and undergoing the International Consultation and Analysis (ICA), while at the same time enhancing domestic MRV systems. It guides users through a six step process, helping to understand what the key steps are, what to consider when implementing those steps, and what the required potential time duration would be, taking into account specific national circumstances. It therefore can also be used as a planning tool that can be applied flexibly by countries. The tool has been created based on experience gained during implementation of the Information Matters project in the partner countries as well as feedback obtained during a review by external experts and partner organisations.

Biennial Update Report Template
The GIZ Biennial Update Report Template seeks to guide non-Annex I Parties in the preparation of Biennial Update Reports (BURs), thereby enabling those Parties to submit transparent as well as ambitious BURs. The template sets out a proposed report structure as well as guidance on the presentation of information, including use of tables.
Stock Taking Tool
The Stock Taking Tool is an analytical tool to support identification of prioritized action for national MRV systems. It aims to aid developing countries in carrying out a stock taking to helping them assess the current ability of their national systems related to mitigation pledge(s) in the context of nationally determined contributions (NDCs), Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS), Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) as well as monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) to create transparency and an information basis for planning and implementing mitigation actions, and to comply with the UNFCCC requirements, e.g. to generate a Biennial Update Report (BUR).
