A well-developed MRV system and good data collection is key for the effective evaluation of transport decarbonisation– Ms. Dang Tuyet Ly, NDC-TIA Viet Nam component leader
A digital MRV system will contribute to evaluate the implementation of GHG emission mitigation measures, thereby helping policymakers to adjust the measures accordingly in order to achieve the targets committed in the updated NDC. In the future the NDC Transport Initiative for Asia Viet Nam team will work closely with public and private stakeholders in Viet Nam to develop a transport MRV system in the suitable for the countrys conditions. The work package is a steppingstone for NDC TIA’s support to the Department of Environment to implement a digital MRV system.
On 14 Sep 2021, the project NDC Transport Initiative for Asia (NDC-TIA) Viet Nam component kicked off its work on transport MRV methodologies and guidance on data collection. In this online inception meeting with the Department of Environment (DOE) of the Ministry of Transport, experts shared good practice on transport MRV from Japan. The meeting discussed the strategic workplan on establishing transport MRV methodologies and data collection standards in Viet Nam.
Until April 2022, the consultant team plans to propose detailed methodologies for monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of transport emission mitigation in Viet Nam. They aim to present the first outline for Vietnam’s future transport MRV structure by the end of 2021 and provide detailed guidelines until mid-2022. “A well-developed MRV system and good data collection is key for the effective evaluation of transport decarbonisation”
The consultant team consists of six local consultants coordinated by Dr Dinh Van Hiep, Director, Institute of Planning and Transportation Engineering (IPTE), and four international consultants of Transport and Mobility Leuven (TML).
The NDC Transport Initiative for Asia is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag.
