A framework for identifying country-specific MRV improvement needs in the livestock sector: Lessons from Kenya, Ethiopia and Nigeria

The working paper presents a framework for assessing country-specific needs, opportunities and priorities for improving measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of livestock greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and emission reductions. The framework consists of 13 guiding questions that are implemented in an eight-step assessment. This working paper explains the steps and guiding questions in each phase of the assessment and provides illustrative examples based on supporting MRV improvement processes in Kenya and Ethiopia as part of the CCAFS’ Enhancing capacities for MRV of sustainable livestock actions in East Africa’ project.
