Knowledge Management Approaches

The knowledge which will be received by the MRV coordinating entity through the NDC intranet, GHG inventory system or any other vehicle, will be disclosed in a database.

The relevant information will also be shared with the Central Administration of Statistics for national dissemination.

The MRV coordinating entity and network dynamics will involve regular meetings and progress reports to the Council of Ministers.

The entirety of the procedures formulated, received training and technical establishment of systems will be documented for transparency and for needed future use.

The communication aspect of the project both nationally and abroad is a major component to be developed.
