Support Project For The Implementation Of The Paris Agreement (Spa)

The project aims to strengthen global initiatives and networks that help partner countries reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, increase their adaptive capacity and provide ambitious reporting. With regard to the NDC partnership, the project supported countries` engagement processes in more than 40 developing countries. The resulting “partnership plans” represent national objectives for the implementation of NPOs and identify contributions from internationally funded projects. This highlights funding gaps and provides the means to improve donor coordination. The project is linked to projects funded under the International Climate Initiative projects that have been included in the partnership plans of 16 countries.

It therefore makes an important contribution to international learning and to link climate protection, biodiversity, disaster risk management and sustainable development goals (SDGs) around the world. With its activities, SPA reaches a wide audience worldwide. The experience gained and lessons learned are incorporated into international discussions on the implementation of climate policy and the UNFCCC negotiation process. On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Environment, Nature Protection and Reactor Safety (BMU), the project team is working at the crossroads of international climate policy and German development cooperation.

The project advises on a number of topics, with the aim of finding the right solutions to meet specific needs. As the secretariat of the Partnership for the Transparency of the Paris Agreement, the project supports the implementation of an important element of the Paris Agreement. The partnership is seen by many as a valuable space in which they can openly discuss issues related to climate negotiations, including sensitive ones. This facilitates common learning and political dialogue among stakeholders and improves mutual understanding and trust. Through online formats, global, regional and national events and knowledge management, the partnership has helped partner countries establish ambitious transparency systems and achieve equitable results and solutions in climate negotiations.
