OTTAWA, 31 October – Commenting on today’s announcement of Canadian government support for a blockchain project in the Pacific Alliance nations (Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru), facilitated by IETA and ClimateCHECK, IETA’s CEO and President Dirk Forrister says:
“As the official implementing entity, IETA looks forward to working with our Partners and leveraging our deep global and regional networks and resources to ensure project success.
“IETA is delighted to assist Canada on this cooperative project with Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru aimed at supporting technical capacity for robust monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) of emissions. Programmes to establish carbon pricing across the region rely on solid MRV of emissions. Technology innovations, like blockchain, in the MRV field may offer important tools – that are scalable and transparent – to inform future programme design, including common accounting and transfers across systems and borders.”
