Good Practice

The Global Good Practice Analysis is a joint initiative by the International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV and the UNDP Low Emission Capacity Building Programme and documents 40 examples of mitigation-related good practices worldwide which demonstrate how INDCs, LEDS, NAMAs and MRV systems are being effectively designed and implemented across a range of national contexts. This section provides an overview of the background and methodology of the study, as well as on main conclusions and lessons learnt. More detailed information on the individual cases and their success factors can be found in case factsheets available for download below. The good practice cases of the first round (GPA1.0) and the overall summary are also available in Spanish and French. The case studies of the GPA2.0 will be translated into Spanish and French soon.

To learn more about the lessons learnt and success factors of the cases, please download:
