MRV in Practice
A booklet and leaflet on the topic "MRV in Practice - Experience in Turkey with designing and implementing a system for Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) of GHG Emissions" have been published in November 2017.
The MRV system has been successfully established in Turkey and serves as a good example. Therefore the booklet “MRV in Practice - Experience in Turkey with designing and implementing a system for monitoring, reporting and verification of GHG emissions” has been prepared to present the experiences and lessons learnt during the establishment of a tailor-made MRV system for energy and industry sector related greenhouse gasses in Turkey. As a best practice, it provides guidance on how an effective MRV system can be designed and implemented to ministries, programme and system administrators and other actors in the field. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, however, this publication outlines the successful process Turkey has implemented and supports countries to develop solutions in their decision making process.
The present booklet includes a brief description of the regulatory MRV framework in Turkey and the roles and responsibilities of the main MRV actors. The core is the presentation of the data management system (DMS) which has been developed from scratch and has become a highly valued tool for all users. The technical architecture as well as the functional components of the DMS are displayed in detail. Furthermore, the capacity development measures which make the entire MRV system so successful are outlined.
Additionally, a leaflet outlining and summarizing the booklet has also been prepared and published in parallel.
