In May 2010, during the Petersberg Climate Dialogue, South Africa, South Korea and Germany launched the International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV. Their aim: to promote ambitious climate action through policy dialogue and practitioner-based exchanges. In 2015, the Paris Agreement introduced the enhanced transparency framework. Its task is to facilitate and catalyse the implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (the NDCs) in order to keep the increase in average global temperature well below 2°C above pre-industrial levels, to pursue efforts to limit temperature increase to 1.5°C and to raise the ambition of the NDCs over time.

The Partnership has since been renamed “Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement”. This move reflects the new challenges arising from the transparency rules while continuing to provide support for practical exchanges between developing and industrialised countries and serving as a discussion forum for climate negotiation topics.
