Jongikhaya WITI,
Independent MRV Expert


Residence: South Africa

Expertise: Energy, Industrial Processes, Waste, Mitigation Actions, Projections, Finance

I am involved in the compilation of South Africa’s GHG inventory and National System. I contributed to South Africa’s Mitigation Potential Analysis and determination of National Mitigation Targets. I am a Course Instructor in the UNFCCC secretariat training programme for undertaking Annex-I GHG inventory reviews. I contribute to the Southern-Africa capacity building programmes for the compilation of national greenhouse gas inventories and Biennial Update Reports (BURs).

I am confident that my experience in both MRV of emissions and climate mitigation actions will contribute to the capacity building objectives of the coalition. My involvement in the design of regional MRV capacity building programmes targeting the compilation of national GHG inventories and Biennial Update Reports demonstrate my ability to conceptualize and implement these programmes in regions with varying national circumstances, opportunities and challenges.

Jongikhaya is a lead reviewer for the UNFCCC, has been nominated to the UNFCCC Roster of Experts, and is an instructor for Annex I GHG Inventory Reviews.
