Reliable results even in challenging environments
The basis for land use change observations is directly-sourced satellite imagery. Local data is compared to results from global data sets.
Moja global tools produce reliable results with a known margin of error
Consistency from project level up to national level
Moja global software always uses the most precise data available between every level whether project, district, provincial or national level.
Moja global software complies with the TACC (Transparency, Accuracy, Consistency, Completeness and Comparability) principles from the Paris Agreement.
Meeting these conditions will further allow for better comparison or approaches taken in different countries leading to more effective interventions
The uniform approach across moja global user countries will make the emissions estimates comparable between countries and, ultimately, even tradable. It will also provide transparency around the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), international climate finance flows, policy approaches and field level implementation.
Compliance with international reporting requirements
The emissions estimates produced by moja global software are formatted in accordance with the UNFCCC reporting template and can be directly uploaded to the UNFCCC reporting platform. Where possible, moja global will get third party reviews of its software to certify compliance with international obligations.
Policy priorities in addition to emissions estimates
Data used for moja global can be used for a wide range of other applications. Moja global will share applications focusing on priorities like food security, water management and biodiversity protection that other countries have developed.
Most of these applications use the same data sets as the software used for emissions estimates. For every data set collected, a whole range of applications can produce essential policy and management information.
Projections and scenarios
Moja global software allows decision makers to compare the impact of various policy options that they have. This allows carbon projects to plan their management interventions to maximize carbon sequestration.
One system that adapts to available data
Moja global software can adapt to the data that a country has available. For example, a country might decide to run a Tier 1 approach with international data for soils, but a Tier 3 approach for forests. Moja global can accommodate this mixed Tier approach.
As more data becomes available, the models in the system can be upgraded accordingly therefore increasing the accuracy of outputs. As accuracy increases, more and more options for co-benefits become available as well.
