    "MRV, leadership and groups/clubs/coalitions" were the buzzwords at the Summer Retreat of the International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV held in Mexico in September 2015. This knowledge product builds upon the discussions from the Summer Retreat and aims at demonstrating that building a coalition of countries to lead the way in Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) can be an effective way of ensuring countries rise above the floor of minimum requirements for transparency in their climate actions.

    Agriculture employs about a third of the population in the Peruvian regions of Junín and Piura. Yet agricultural productivity is impeded by low technology and investments, as well as fragmented land tenure. Climate events already have massive impacts on the agricultural sector and climate change is likely to further intensify these effects. This report argues that climate risk management strategies in agriculture must address current climate variability while preparing the sector for the eventual impacts of warming and glacier retreat.
