moja global focuses on the land sector
The land sector is an important source of GHG emissions but sufficient investment can turn the land sector into a crucial CO2 sink. The land sector is essential to meet the Paris commitment of net zero emissions in the second half of the century. But land is also an important source of income for most countries. Interventions in the land sector need to carefully balance emissions with other policy priorities. This makes the land sector an essential but complex environment to work in.
moja global focuses on national policy priorities
The land sector is the most significant source of emissions for most developing countries but at the same time it is also the most important source of income for many of these countries. The land sector is essential for food security, wildlife tourism, water catchments and clean air. Reducing emissions can only succeed if mitigation strategies go hand in hand with national policy priorities of the land sector. moja global tools can project the impact of mitigation policies and can generate co-benefits to improve land management.
moja global focuses on user needs
moja global is a member based organization bringing together users and developers of moja global software. moja global’s only aim is to support the widest possible use of credible emissions estimation software by countries, institutions and project managers. All members collaborate to achieve this goal, which reduces duplication and thus cost, but it also provides more reliable software that responds better to user needs.
moja global focuses on the key obstacle
Various donor countries have indicated that monitoring, reporting and verification systems (MRV) that comply with international standards are the most critical obstacle to investments that reduce emissions from the land sector. moja global provides a solution to this challenge - moja global software produces reliable results with a known margin of error. Moreover, as more and more countries start using moja global software the results become comparable between countries.
moja global focuses on handling complexity
Developing a bespoke MRV system to estimate emissions from the land sector involves high levels of expertise from a wide range of actors at the national and local level. By using moja global software, countries can avoid a drain on their precious human resources and can easily embed the MRV system into their existing government systems. Moreover, regular updates in line with the latest developments in science and international agreements, make the maintenance of the MRV system affordable.
moja global software is of a new generation
moja global software can combine approaches at different IPCC Tiers based on the needs of the user countries or the data available. The data can be improved over time without losing consistency or having to change to a new software package. The software allows countries to take advantage of new remote sensing technologies and new data sets becoming available. Models can be easily changed, coded and calibrated in the coding language preferred by the user.
