Component 1: Supports the establishment and strengthening of the institutional arrangements for a robust GHG inventory and MRV system. This component addresses; policy and institutional governance, data collection and processing, and coordination of mitigation actions.
Component 2: Build the capacity of key stakeholders to collect process and feed gender-disaggregated data into the GHG inventory system. The major activities emphasize quality control and assurance through the development of data collection and processing protocols.
Component 3: Test and pilot the GHG emission inventory and MRV system. This component will ensure that data from GHG inventory and MRV system will be fed into the global CBIT coordination platform using standard templates.
