CelineDefining: considerations when defining scopePrioritizing: lead you through the indicators, how to pick out individuals or clusters
- Establish common terminology and concepts- Help potential users navigate tools and methodologies Synthesize and share lessons and experiences from the existing initiatives
FlorenceInternational SIS: Brazil blocking the negotiations, Mexico. Indonesia has moved forward with SIS at national level, but reluctance to bring it up to the international. Recommendation was therefore to allow countries to develop at their own pace, but not yet close the door. MRV vs. monitoring. Monitoring is data collection in all areas. Pushing mandate for transparency. Whereas MRV is about how to measure performance. Q debated: is it worth investing that much in measuring performance for emissions reductions for credits, WHEN the demand is so low right now? Also costs: Costa Rica at FCPF: the level of uncertainty is bigger than the estimated emissions reductions, and the cost to monitor is a lot more than what the credits would generate. Mexico: socially impossible to engage in markets, PNG pushing very hard. Drivers: Annex I countries to take care of, TRADE is an issue that came up, but can’t have trade under the UNFCCC.
GaiaUNDP wants to be a FCPF delivery partner– therefore pushing on with fulfilling the Common Approach requirements.
For REDD countries: critical self-assessment of progress to inform next steps, highlight key achievements and outstanding gaps to communicate to donors For donors: credible assessment of gaps and needs, help to prioritize additional readiness financing and phase 2 financing For civil society: transparent check point, hold governments accountable for the things they said they’d do in their RPPs
