MAPT and its partners are developing a framework that outlines the key institutional functions, roles, and mandates necessary for an effective GHG measurement and performance tracking system. Case studies highlighting different institutional models employed by developed and developing countries will also be produced.
In 2011, WRI worked with in-country partners to conduct a scoping exercise in each of the six MAPT countries. This included a combination of surveys with key stakeholders including government officials, workshops and desk-based research.
The scoping exercise sought to map the national institutions and systems responsible for coordinating climate actions and tracking GHG emissions and identify resource, capacity and information needs, and barriers that need to be overcome.
The results of the country surveys, as compiled by in-country partners, can be accessed here.
- A framework defining the key institutional functions required effective GHG emissions measurement and performance tracking.
- Case studies on institutional arrangements for measurement and performance tracking.
- Assessments in MAPT countries on institutional capacities.
|Background: The success of efforts to measure and track performance are often contingent on having in place institutions with the capacity to effectively coordinate, measure and manage climate policies and GHG emissions across a range of sectors. Institutional considerations could include: clarity of institutional roles and mandates; legal agreements for data sharing; the process for coordination and information sharing and transfer between and within institutions; mechanisms for information collection, sharing and coordination; human, financial and technical resources dedicated to measurement and performance tracking systems; mechanisms in place to build and retain technical expertise; and knowledge of institutional processes.|
