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

 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 
 Australia has also invested A$40 million (of which A$2.4 million is fast-start) in the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience, which aims to demonstrate ways in which climate risk and resilience may be integrated into core development planning and implementation in a range of Pacific countries, including Papua New Guinea, Samoa and Tonga.

Viet Nam The Viet Nam Energy Efficiency Standards and Labelling Program: This program builds upon Viet Nam’s existing energy efficiency standards and labelling program to help consumers make informed purchasing decisions that improve the country’s energy intensity and reduce carbon emissions. 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 
 Australia has recently allocated A$3 million to support a Pacific Standards and Labelling Assistance program to reduce emissions and create a more energy efficient electricity sector in the Pacific. This program focuses on aligning energy efficiency standards in everyday appliances like fridges, air conditioners and lighting with established standards in Australia and New Zealand.AustraliaPacific Pacific Standards and Labelling Assistance program  3.000AUDUpdate 2011 
 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
