Measuring, reporting and verification (MRV) embody an important concept of transparency in international climate policy. 3 main questions arise in this context: how can the current level and progress of international mitigation actions be measured (M), reported (R) and verified (V)? At the global level, measuring involves collecting data on the impacts of mitigation actions, which are then reported in order to determine whether the world is on track to achieve the 2 °C target. The accuracy of the information must be verified in order to facilitate learning processes and progressively improve the effectiveness of mitigation actions. At the national level, MRV further provides a framework for policy decisions on the planning and implementation of mitigation activities.
The National MRV Tier addresses the GHG emissions reporting and voluntary national mitigation efforts of developing countries and will be conducted at the international level under the UNFCCC. This tier covers MRV of national mitigation efforts and the national GHG inventory. It includes: 1) measuring (M) parameters to prepare the national GHG inventory; institutional structure; 2) reporting (R) of information on national GHG inventory and impacts of NAMAs on GHG emissions through BURs and NCs; 3) assessment of the information included in BURs through ICA, which is the verification (V) step of MRV.
The purpose of MRV of NAMAs is to ensure stakeholder trust in their implementation and performance against targets and objectives set. Verification of progress may be required for National communication or in relation to for example performance based payments. The MRV System is closely linked to the projects own Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) System.

The NAMA Support Project “Low-Carbon Coffee Costa Rica” aims to support the production and processing of low-emission and sustainable coffee in Costa Rica.
The key actors in the coffee sector implement strategies, programs and measures which ensure that coffee is produced and processed in a low-emission and environmentally, socially and economically sustainable manner.
The key actors in the coffee sector, especially on the level of coffee mills, invest in technologies for low-carbon coffee production.
