Promoting leadership on transparency in climate change policy


‘MRV’, ‘leadership’ or ‘coalitions’ were the buzzwords at the Intl. Partnership on Mitigation and MRV Summer Retreat in Mexico this year. Discussions have resulted in a knowledge product that aims to show that a coalition of leading countries in Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) can be an effective way to ensure countries rise above the floor of minimum requirements of transparency of their climate actions.

The concept of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) concept is in its early stages and has not shown its full potential. It is still being tested in practice and at the same time finding its way as an element of the international climate regime. In this paper we have used the theme of stakeholder engagement to reflect on current issues in NAMA development that warrant further discussion in their own right: the need for broader uptake of the concept, the availability of financial support, the search for transformational impact, and the political nature of low-carbon development.

In the years preceding the adoption of the Paris Agreement, a key question that preoccupied many negotiators was: how can the new agreement build in flexibility for countries to increase the ambition of their mitigation “contributions” (as national actions are now called in the climate negotiations), even after they have communicated them as “nationally determined contributions” (NDCs)?

The adoption of the Paris Agreement on 12 December 2015 was greeted with cheering, applause, even tears – but above all, relief. "History will remember this day," UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said, after the Agreement was adopted. "The Paris agreement on climate change is a monumental success for the planet and its people." The truth is, it is probably too early to call the Paris Agreement either a success or a failure. It is a starting point more than a finale.

The aim of the programme is providing policymakers and other stakeholders of an initial set of up to 20 developing countries with MRV related tools/methodologies to support the development of domestic MRV systems tailored to country circumstances.
The project aims to advance an international control for F-gases. It shall strengthen cooperation between various initiatives by promoting a coordinated agreement, reducing overlaps, and harmonizing donor contributions. Furthermore, the project will support partner countries in formulating mitigation strategies in the RAC sector and thereby advancing their NDCs.
The overarching target of the Sri Lanka NAMA is the promotion and adoption of clean, sustainable and efficient means of public transportation within the Colombo Metropolitan Area (CMA), resulting in a modal shift from private to public mode of transportation.
