The Monitoring and Verification Support (MVS) capacity is a technical capacity to provide support to the policy makers and the scientific community. The MVS aims at supplying extra evidence on the emissions levels and trends, coupling anthropogenic activities and associated emissions with the atmospheric patterns in greenhouse gas concentrations. The MVS thus intends to support enhancing the quality of national greenhouse gas emission inventories and complement the data available under the UNFCCC measurement, reporting and verification framework. The MVS will include top-down verification of emissions using independent atmospheric observations and, in particular, observations acquired by spaceborne sensors at high temporal and spatial resolutions all over the globe.
