In May 2010, during the framework of the Petersberg Climate Dialogue, South Africa, the Republic of Korea and Germany launched the Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement (formerly: International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV). Their aim: to promote ambitious climate action through policy dialogue and practitioner-based exchanges. Following the entry into force of the Paris Agreement 2016, the Partnership focused on its implementation, and particularly on the rollout of the enhanced transparency framework. The Partnership is not a formal alliance but is open to new countries.

The project will establish country specific Low Carbon Plans (LCP). These LCPs will be the basis to create momentum for the uptake of mitigation and adaptation targets and measures in government policies and programmes as well as by civil society, and the business sector. The LCPs will start from emission reduction targets set for 2050, and will analyse all relevant sectors, taking into account carbon emissions, efficiency potential, policy options, drivers of and barriers to change.
A Solid Waste NAMA is under development in Peru. The two year programme (2013 to 2015) is supported by the Nordic Working Group for Global Climate Negotiations (NOAK) and the Nordic Environment Finance Corporation (NEFCO). It is implemented and coordinated by the Peruvian Ministry of Environment (MINAM).
Based on a forerunner project of the International Climate Initiative (IKI) the project systemically builds up capacity and knowledge of national political decision makers and persons responsible for power saving and energy cleansing in the housing sector on provincial and city level. At the request of the Ministry of Housing Urban and Rural Development (MoHURD) the concepts will in particular incorporate German know-how and technology knowledge.
Chile’s power sector is heavily dominated by coal-powered electricity and the country is on a trajectory to add 8000 – 10000 megawatts of new capacity by 2020. In an effort to make Chile’s electricity supply less dependent on imported fossil fuels and to encourage the development of non-conventional renewable energy (NCRE) sources Chile is developing a NAMA in the form of a Price Stabilization Fund (PSF). The objective of the PSF is to catalyze commercial bank financing for NCRE projects which will by effect increase and accelerate the realization of NCRE investments over time.
