Monitoring Compliance with Emissions Reduction Policies

International agreements and policies, to be effective, need to be enforced, verified, and monitored. Standards and certification mechanisms for reducing GHG emissions also need to be created and implemented. Constraints to monitoring compliance with and the effectiveness of such policies include lack of adequate and reliable methods for measuring GHG emissions, lack of mechanisms for accurately accounting for GHG emissions and for offsets, and lack of technical capacity to monitor and enforce policies nationally and across international borders.
