This webinar is organized jointly with Belgium, France, Switzerland, Germany, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), the Global Support Programme (GSP) of UNDP and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the Initiative for Climate Action Transparency (ICAT) and the Climate Change Competence Centre (4C) of Morocco.

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”.

The Cluster Francophone began operating in 2013 when it held its first regional workshop in Tunis, Tunisia. The group currently comprises around 35 francophone developing and developed countries. The Cluster is co-organised and co-funded by the Belgian, French and Swiss Environment Ministries. Activities focus on sharing best practices, knowledge management, peer learning and capacity building. The group is open to all countries with an interest in learning about the topics of the Partnership on a peer-to-peer basis. The working language of this regional group is French.
