Workshop report of the Latin American Greenhouse Gas Inventory Network and the Latin American Workshop on Implementing MRV Systems for Mitigation Actions and Building Scenarios
This report aims to reflect training results and exchanged experiences during the first meeting of the Latin American Greenhouse Gas Inventory Network and the Latin American Workshop on Implementing MRV Systems for Mitigation Actions and Building Scenarios. Both events took place in Santiago de Chile, with technical and financial support from the Information Matters (IM) project of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, the Global Support Programme (GSP), jointly implemented by UNDP and UNEP, and the Climate Change Department of the Chilean Ministry of the Environment. The activities aimed to disseminate information on greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories and measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems for mitigation actions, including emissions projections, and to provide training for professionals in these fields. The work of the Latin American Greenhouse Gas Inventory Network resulted in identifying the main needs of the member countries as well as in prioritising the main areas of action. The workshop on MRV for mitigation actions in Latin America provided useful training and fostered the exchange of experiences.
