Nicola has over ten years’ experience in emission inventories and projections. She has worked as the project manager and GHG technical lead for the UK’s national atmospheric emissions inventory and has excellent insight into the design and improvement of institutional arrangements related to MRV. This work included overseeing production of inventories to be submitted to the EU via the Monitoring Mechanism Regulation (MMR) and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) each year. The UK’s domestic reporting under this contract includes national emissions statistics which feed into the UK Carbon Budgets and other policy support. Nicola has worked with the Welsh Government to improve their emissions inventory and to develop and maintain a raft of climate change indicators which have been used to track progress against climate targets and to enable policy makers to appreciate how progress made can be perceived within inventory data. She is now working with the MRV and Cities team within Ricardo working across the world to help establish, develop and improve GHG emissions inventories in other countries.
