Description 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. A semi-formal forum, the Partnership has gained international recognition. Today more than 100 countries participate in its various activities. 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.
Objectives The Partnership seeks to:

• foster transparency, communication, networking and trust between countries, • provide capacity building and promote a mutual learning process within regions and among practitioners on a global scale, • identify and disseminate good practices examples and lessons learned.

Activities • Partnership Meetings held on the fringes of UN climate negotiations

• Capacity building activities and peer-to-peer learning through technical workshops in five regional and language groups, and through international conferences • Knowledge products and knowledge sharing, for example through newsletters, a website and a Twitter channel
