Can we unlock billions of dollars of climate finance for nature-based solutions this decade? Not if we can’t measure, report, and verify (MRV) the carbon impacts of our interventions. WRI’s Land & Carbon Lab and partners are developing open access data solutions to improve the accuracy, precision, transparency, and cost-effectiveness of MRV at project, jurisdictional, and global scales. This event will preview upcoming breakthroughs in how we monitor carbon removals from local landscape restoration, avoided emissions from reducing deforestation, net GHG emissions from commodity supply chains, and more. Hear from the leading scientists behind these breakthroughs, as well as the investors, policy-makers, companies and project developers who urgently need tailored yet scalable MRV solutions.
