Like many other developing countries Kazakhstan is currently conducting an analysis of the existing system for measuring and reporting on the impact of climate change measures (both mitigation and adaptation measures). Since the available resources and practical knowledge are insufficient Kazakhstan needs a more comprehensive approach to changing and implementing the National Monitoring, Reporting and Verification system.

One of the main components of the Project is to study existing inventory methods and offer the best available methods and best practices for their further application in Kazakhstan’s inventory methodologies and systems.

The project will aim to implement a modern MRV system and include adaptation measures in the NDC. It is planned to develop a roadmap for implementation of commitments, which specifies the main directions of national activities for adaptation and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and which will become a technical guide for the government of Kazakhstan to achieve the goals of reducing greenhouse gas emissions and measures for adaptation.

In order to continue the UNDP’s policy to ensure that countries are aware of vulnerability to climate issues, the importance of climate change adaptation and mitigation, also to increase attention to issues related to climate change, a series of sessions, workshops and seminars on topics related to climate change will be organized.
