Developing countries face the challenge of meeting development goals while at the same time reducing their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in order to address climate change. For these efforts to succeed, effective systems are needed to manage greenhouse gases and related emissions reduction activities. The Measurement and Performance Tracking (MAPT) project helps build national capacities in developing countries to measure GHG emissions and track performance toward low-carbon development goals. Lessons learned are also being shared with international audiences in order to replicate successes and inform the design of relevant rules within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
To carry out MAPT, WRI is partnering with a broad range of stakeholders within five countries: Colombia, Ethiopia, India, South Africa, and Thailand.
MAPT is a four-year project funded primarily by the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
For more information on the MAPT project contact the project manager, Kelly Levin at KLevin@wri.org.
