How to assess the impact of a transport based mitigation efforts? Where to find good measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) practices and what requirements must be met in terms of data collection? The Reference Document on MRV in the transport sector gives advice on good MRV practices and on how to develop comprehensive and consistent national systems for MRV of transport related emissions.  Therefore, it addresses especially policy makers in developing countries and developers of National Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in transport systems. It further explains approaches and key parameters for transport sector related MRV.

The Reference Document on Transparency in the Transport Sector provides guidance on how to develop comprehensive and consistent national systems for monitoring transport related emissions. It includes monitoring or MRV of GHG emissions of transport climate actions and the development of national transport GHG inventories. The document builds on existing knowledge and lessons learned in on-going NAMA activities and experiences in GHG emissions quantification in the transport sector in developed and developing countries. By summarising existing state of the art in one publication, the Reference Document presents decision makers in charge of building up national monitoring systems with a concise source of information.
