WRI's Measurement and Performance Tracking

  1. 1. WRI’s Measurement and Performance Tracking A new initiative, supported by: Jennifer Morgan World Resources Institute June 11, 2011
  2. 2. Opportunity • Major emerging economies are undertaking mitigation actions • International rules for MRV are being negotiated Measurement and performance tracking is essential both internationally & domestically. But policy, technical and political hurdles must be addressed.
  3. 3. The Measurement & Performance Tracking (MAPT) Initiative Objectives National: Target countries design and implement in- country measurement and performance tracking systems and standards across different levels to meet domestic goals and are “ready” to implement international rules when rules when finalized. International: The lessons learned, strengths and weaknesses of domestic measurement and performance tracking systems are taken stock of by other developing countries and the international climate process to design a robust and effective MRV system.
  4. 4. Guiding Principles • Work in partnership with national actors • Draw from GHG Protocol and other international measurement standards and practices • Build on existing in-country methodologies and systemssystems • Ensure metrics/guidelines are policy-neutral • Engage a broad range of relevant stakeholders including government agencies, business, and civil society organizations
  5. 5. Convened in 1998 by A multi-stakeholder partnership of businesses, Greenhouse Gas Protocol NGOs, governments and others Mission: Develop internationally accepted GHG accounting and reporting standards and to promote their use worldwide
  6. 6. Key Programs Based on or Informed by GHG Protocol • Brazil GHG Protocol Program • China Cement & Power Sectors Programs • India GHG Inventorization Program • Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) • The Climate Registry • California Climate Action Registry • Chicago Climate Exchange • Dow Jones Sustainability Index • EU Emissions Trading Scheme • French REGES Protocol 6 • French REGES Protocol • Global Reporting Initiative • METI, Japan • Mexico GHG Program • Respect Europe Business Leaders Initiative for Climate Change (BLICC) • International Trade Associations (Aluminum, IPIECA, ICFPA, Cement, Iron and Steel) • UK DEFRA Corporate Reporting Program • U.S. EPA Climate Leaders Initiative • World Wildlife Fund Climate Savers • ISO 14064 Part 1 • U.S. Department of Energy (1605b) • US Federal Executive Order

  8. 8. Project Components Guidelines, Methods &Tools Development Scoping/Capacity Mapping and Partner IdentificationScoping/Capacity Mapping and Partner Identification National Inventories Institutions Policy Accounting& Translating Results Internationally Awareness & Capacity Building Policy Accounting& Performance Tracking Business engagement CSO engagement
  9. 9. • New guidance on accounting for GHG impact of policies/mitigation actions • Voluntary, policy-neutral, internationally applicable • For government and civil society Policy Accounting Guidance • For government and civil society • Methods for monitoring GHG policy impacts, projecting future policy impacts • First step: Scoping to establish need and content of new guidance
  10. 10. Performance tracking and accounting guidance benefits • Can allow governments (across national, state, city levels) and other users (e.g., development banks, industry, NGOs) to quantify GHG reductions and assess the potential of policies, based on an ex-antepotential of policies, based on an ex-ante estimation of GHG impact • Can support domestic decision making (to evaluate and compare actions/policies) • Can promote more consistency and transparency in reported results
