MRV Webinar Series: The Role and Importance of MRV for Biogas Projects

List of Events

Date8 September 2022
Location: Virtual Event
Industry Sector: Biogas

Biogas projects—including those that capture and use methane emissions from the agriculture, municipal solid waste, and municipal wastewater sectors—are critical for mitigating climate change, enhancing energy security, and improving public health.

Many governments may find it difficult to account for biogas project emissions and emissions reductions. One key challenge is the limited access to clear guiding principles for measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) of emissions and emissions reductions from the biogas sector. An effective MRV system is critical for nations to develop robust emissions inventories and set ambitious mitigation targets under the Paris agreement.

Please join the Global Methane Initiative (GMI) for the first in a series of webinars focused on MRV for biogas projects. This first webinar will introduce the basics of MRV, discuss the big picture importance of MRV in the context of the Paris Climate Agreement, and highlight GMI’s MRV resources, including the MRV Handbook and Resource Center.
