Improving transparency: Implementing MRV of livestock NAMAS to meet NDC and finance needs
Countries require sub-national projects to fulfil NDC commitments, but project accounting, often driven by donors or investors, rarely links to national accounting systems for mitigation and other benefits. Livestock projects in Latin America may reveal how to connect NAMAs and national MRV systems.
