Factor launches the project: MRV System of progress in the implementation of the NDC of El Salvador
20 November 2018 | Adaptation
Between November 19 and 21, Factor's team is in San Salvador for the launch of the project: "Establishment of a Monitoring and Reporting System (MRV) of Progress in the Implementation of El Salvador's Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC)". It is part of EUROCLIMA+'s support to El Salvador and is coordinated by the International and Ibero-American Foundation for Public Administration and Policies (FIIAPP by its Spanish acronym).
The objective of the project is to support El Salvador's Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (MARN by its Spanish acronym) in establishing a MRV system to measure progress in the implementation of NDCs, in line with international reporting needs and in compliance with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The purpose of this MRV system is to facilitate the timely monitoring of the progress achieved through the actions carried out to tackle climate change, the measurement of its effectiveness and the improvements in management by the responsible institutions.
The MRV system will have a battery of indicators that will allow adequate monitoring of the progress of actions, both mitigation and adaptation, by the MARN and the institutions involved.
The team of Factor, represented by Ibon Galarraga, CEO of Metroeconomica and Susana González, consultant of Factor, will meet with different governmental and institutional entities related to the project, to define the work plan and make a diagnosis on the indicators and monitoring systems currently used.
Factor has several years of experience designing and developing MRV and M&E systems for governments of different countries, both at the national level, in countries such as Costa Rica or Peru, and at the sub-national level, in several Mexican states (financed by GIZ). It is also currently developing the conceptual framework for the domestic MRV system for the Government of Ecuador, financed by UNDP.
