South AfricaCato Manor Green Street Phase 2: With A$125,000, the Cato Manor Green Street Phase 2 project completed a ‘green’ retrofit of 26 low-income houses in Durban, South Africa, installing solar water heaters, energy efficient lighting, heat-insulation cookers, roof insulation, rainwater tanks, food gardens and fruit trees. In addition to the retrofit itself, the project provided short-term employment and training to nine community members and leveraged an additional A$25,000 in complementary investment. In a country aiming to build 3 million low-cost homes by 2025, the project is now being used to demonstrate the health, livelihood and energy saving benefits of incorporating energy efficiency and emissions reduction measures into low-cost housing construction. The project is an example of what can be achieved on a very small budget if carefully designed with clear results in mind.Australia     0.125AUD2013

South AfricaSouth Africa Land Sector MRV Capacity Building Project: South Africa, like Australia, faces huge challenges when it comes to understanding and measuring emissions from its land sector. Drawing on its specialised experience in this area, Australia is supporting the South African government to build its capacity and expertise in the measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) of emissions from the Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU) sector. Under the project, South Africa’s Department of Environmental Affairs has recruited two new land sector MRV experts who will establish a strategic plan for the development of a comprehensive AFOLU sector MRV system for South Africa. The experts are being supported by an administrative assistant and a research assistant, who are also employed under the project.Australia     0.875AUD2013

It also targets the Government of Viet Nam’s monitoring and verification capabilities. By fostering a high level of engagement with the Government of Vietnam and enlisting the support of international experts to advise on elements of the scheme, this project is building the capacity of government officials and helping to inform the development of policy and legislation.Australia     2.750AUD2013 
Developing CountriesMRV Capacity Building Program: Australia is supporting a range of developing countries in Africa and Asia to build their capacity to understand, quantify and report their greenhouse gas emissions, with a view to establishing robust and transparent national measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems. In designing the program, Australia took account of existing initiatives, such as the UNFCCC Regional MRV program, International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV, and UNDP’s Low Emissions Capacity Building Programme. Doing so was important to avoiding duplication, maximising coverage, and focusing Australia’s contribution to ensure it has the most impact. As the Program rolls out, Australia will continue to coordinate closely with associated programs and donors to ensure that our investments work in a complementary manner.AustraliaAfrica Regional, Asia Regional    3.000AUD2013

This has included installing fences to prevent erosion, rehabilitating coastal forests, improving dyke management, and promoting new mangrove planting techniques. Based on the success of the Kien Giang pilot project, Australia invested A$9.6 million of its fast-start finance to support an expanded partnership between Australia and Germany across five provinces in the Mekong Delta, under the Climate Change and Coastal Ecosystems Program.

 Lighting Information and Technical Exchange for Standards: Australia supports Lighting Information and Technical Exchange for Standards (lites.asia) a regional network of lighting efficiency policy makers and regulators promoting regional cooperation on lighting energy efficiency issues. Lites.asia assists partner countries to undertake regulatory and policy reform to support low-emission development and encourage private sector investment through harmonised lighting standards. The overall goal is to make energy efficient lighting products available to all consumers in the Asia-Pacific region. Lites.asia arose out of a meeting in October 2009, when representatives from Australia, China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, USA and Viet Nam met to discuss the potential benefits of regional co-operation on the development of lighting standards. Today over 600 participants from 20 economies actively collaborate on projects, participate in IEC meetings, and share knowledge on local standards and labelling via the internet and in regional meetings.Australia  Lighting Information and Technical Exchange for Standards (lites.asia)  0.750AUD2013

 Viet Nam Low Carbon Rice Project: Australia is assisting rice farmers in the Mekong Delta to change the way they cultivatestheir rice crops to reduce greenhouse gas emission from rice production, while enhancing yields, creating environmental co-benefits, and providing supplementary income through the international carbon market. Implemented by the Environmental Defense Fund, the objectives of the project align with a number of national strategies, ensuring harmonisation with national-level planning. For example, Viet Nam’s National Green Growth Strategy outlines a commitment to join international efforts to reduce GHG emissions, recognising that promoting low-carbon growth also has broader benefits for sustainable development. The project also supports the Vietnamese Governments’ National Strategic Vision to 2030 for rice production and food security, which recognises the Mekong Delta as crucial to food security, both for Viet Nam and the world.AustraliaMekong Delta    1.300AUD2013

 Savanna Fire Management Initiative: Through a new methodology developed under Australia’s Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI), Indigenous communities and pastoralists in tropical north Australia are reducing emissions by reintroducing traditional-style early dry season savanna burning practices. The CFI is allowing these groups to receive payments for the reduction, supplementing other income streams. Australia is now exploring the applicability of this methodology in developing countries, in collaboration with the United Nations University and the North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance Ltd. The initiative will share Australia’s savanna fire management mitigation methodology and project experience with developing countries, while also laying the groundwork for establishing projects by identifying potential pilot sites and in-country partners.AustraliaPacific island countries    2.250AUD2013

 The Pacific Appliance Labelling and Standards program: As a global leader in domestic energy efficiency policies, Australia is assisting twelve participating Pacific Island countries including Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Kiribati, Tuvalu and Cook Islands to enact and implement standards and labelling regulations for appliances such as refrigerators, air conditioners, and lighting, thereby reducing energy use, emissions and energy bills. It has been estimated that the introduction of appliance energy efficiency standards and labelling in the Pacific region could reduce emissions by approximately 2,230 kt CO2 equivalent and save between US$600 and $900 million dollars over a fifteen year period (2011-2025).Australia  Pacific Appliance Labelling and Standards program  3.000AUD2013

Chile, India, NigeriaCanada is contributing $200 million in fast-start financing to the Clean Technology Fund (CTF) of the Climate Investments Funds (with $100 million delivered in Canada's fical year 2011/12 and $100 million in 2012/13). The Climate Investment Funds are a pair of funds to help developing countries pilot low-emissions and climate-resilient development. Canada was already a leading contributor in the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) of the CIFs, with $100M provided as a grant over 2008/09-2009/10. The CTF promotes scaled-up financing for demonstration, deployment and transfer of low-carbon technologies with significant potential for long-term greenhouse gas emissions savings. Consistent with a decision of the CIF Board, Canada's contribution to the CTF will support the investment plans of projects in Chile, Nigeria and India.CanadaCaribbean, Latin AmericaClean Technology Fund (CTF) Mitigation 100.000CAD2012FY 2011/2012
