The purpose of this needs assessment was twofold: 1) to assess the current capacity needs related to meeting monitoring, reporting, and verification (MRV) requirements under Article 13 of the Paris Agreement; 2) to identify areas where training and capacity strengthening was needed and provide recommendations on its structure and content.
This assessment focuses on individual capacity, as opposed to institutional and organizational capacity, which will be addressed by other activities under the UNDP-GEF CBIT project and activities funded by other donors, such as the European Union.
