It is 
imperative
 that
 Parties
 make
 progress
 on
 the issue of measurable, reportable and verifiable (MRV) -a checklist for accountability on measures for emission reductions.
The recommendation papers on this page examine where
 Parties
 need
 to
 make
 progress
 on
 one
 particular
 element
 of
 the
 MRV
 system
 for
 developing 
and developed countries National
 Communications
 process. These have been written by IndyACT,
 Germanwatch,
 Greenpeace
 and 
WWF

.

In addition to this, WWF released an analyisis earlier this year called - Counting the Gigatonnes: Building Trust in Greenhouse Gas Inventories from the United States and China. This paper outlines the systems already in place in both countries that can ensure accurate and timely data on greenhouse gas emissions.

The United States and China, by far the world’s two biggest emitters of greenhouse gas pollution, have the technology and processes in place right now to accurately measure and report their emissions of CO2 and other heat-trapping gases.
