The Partnership

In May 2010, within the framework of the Petersberg Climate Dialogue, South Africa, South Korea and Germany launched the International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV with the aim of promoting ambitious climate action through practical exchange. In 2015, the Paris Agreement established transparency as the mechanism to facilitate and catalyse the implementation of the nationally determined contributions (the NDCs) in order to achieve the goal of holding the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 °C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit the temperature increase to 1.5 °C, and to raise the ambition of the NDCs over time.

To reflect the new challenges arising from the transparency rules while continuing to support the practical exchange between developing and industrialised countries and serving as a forum to discuss climate negotiation-related topics the Partnership was renamed “Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement
