Measurement, reporting and verification (MRV)
  • Measurement - is the process of collecting data over time, providing basic datasets, including associated accuracy and precision, for the range of relevant variables (UN REDD, 2009).
  • Reporting - following predetermined formats and established standards (e.g. the IPCC) it refers to the process of formal reporting of assessment results to the UNFCCC (UN REDD, 2009), or any other relevant third party or authority.
  • Verification - according to established approaches, it refers to the formal verification process of reports (UN REDD, 2009).
