Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement

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.
