Strengthening Greenhouse Gas MRV Systems in Colombia: A RALI Engagement Case Study
Recognizing the need to improve the alignment of GHG accounting between mitigation activities in Colombia and the Colombian national inventory, USAID’s Resources to Advance LEDS Implementation (RALI) project worked in close collaboration with the Government of Colombia (GoC) to harmonize the country’s GHG MRV systems. Colombia is a regional leader in climate action, having implemented a carbon tax, passed legislation to incentivize renewable energy projects, and spearheaded low emissions development in the Latin American cattle sector. In the next few years, the GoC has prioritized harmonizing its MRV systems and national inventory to ensure that their climate achievements are accurately reflected in their international reporting (i.e., national inventory reports, biennial transparency reports). This case study describes the activities and lessons learned from RALI’s engagement in Colombia.
