The workshop on Developing NDC-MRV System for Increased Transparency and Climate Action Monitoring in Tanzania continued for the third day on 29th March 2023, with an exciting agenda planned for the participants. The day started with the presentation of the developed MRV system, where the system developers presented the system to GHG members and explained how it works. The members had the opportunity to test the system to see its effectiveness, and it was found to be highly useful in monitoring and reporting on climate action.
After the presentation, the members went into a breakout session to identify gaps and propose recommendations for enhanced coordination of MRV for NDCs in Tanzania. They engaged in discussions on a framework for enhanced coordination and synergy on MRV for NDCs in Tanzania. These sessions provided valuable insights into how MRV systems can be developed and implemented effectively in Tanzania.
Following the breakout sessions, the members came together to receive presentations and outputs from the Agriculture, Forestry, and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector on the gaps and proposed recommendations for MRV for NDCs in Tanzania. The sector provided valuable feedback on how MRV systems can be improved and integrated into their sector’s activities. The Energy sector also gave a presentation on the gaps and proposed recommendations for MRV for NDCs in Tanzania, providing a comprehensive overview of how the energy sector can contribute to climate action.
Overall, the workshop is progressing well, with participants highly motivated to give their best to ensure that they come up with the best NDC-MRV system in the country that meets all international standards. The workshop has been highly informative, providing a platform for stakeholders from different sectors to collaborate and share their experiences, challenges, and best practices. It is hoped that the outcomes of this workshop will contribute significantly to Tanzania’s efforts to tackle climate change and achieve its NDC targets.
