 Low Emission Capacity Building Programme: Robust measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems, Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs), and Low Emissions Development Strategies (LEDS) are increasingly seen as important preconditions for receiving increased climate finance. However, the capacity for many developing countries to establish and generate these systems and mechanisms remains weak. Through the United Nations Development Programme’s (UNDP) Low Emissions Capacity Building Programme, Australia is supporting 25 countries to strengthen their institutional and technical capacity to plan and undertake mitigation actions, through the formulation of LEDS and NAMAs. The Programme is also assisting participants to establish the national greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory and MRV systems required to underpin their mitigation actions. Acknowledging that the responsibility for responding to climate change extends beyond national governments, the Programme is also supporting selected industrial sectors within partner countries to identify appropriate mitigation actions.Australia     5.000AUD2013

Viet NamViet Nam Climate Change and Coastal Ecosystems Program: Since 2008, Australia has partnered with the German and Vietnamese governments to work with communities in Kien Giang, Viet Nam to adapt to climate change and improve the management of coastal environments. 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. The five year program will be supported by a national component that will promote the sharing of lessons and experiences across provinces to inform a national response to climate change.Australia     9.600AUD2013

 World Bank Partnership for Market Readiness: Australia is working with other governments through the World Bank Partnership for Market Readiness (PMR) to build the capacity of countries to develop domestic carbon market instruments to scale up emission reduction efforts and support low carbon development. Helping to develop the essential “readiness” components for these instruments—such as data management, measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) systems and the creation of policy and regulatory frameworks—is a crucial part of the PMR’s work. The PMR, a global partnership of 28 developed and developing countries, has achieved a significant amount since it was established in 2011. It has exceeded its target capitalisation of $US100 million and approved funding for countries to develop detailed carbon market plans and work towards implementation of domestic carbon market instruments. In addition to grant funding and in-country expert support, partner countries build capacity by sharing lessons learned in technical workshops, policy dialogues and virtual knowledge platforms as they look to develop new or improve on existing domestic carbon market instruments.Australia  World Bank: Partnership for Market Readiness  12.500AUD2013

 The Adaptation Fund has recently been working with the Solomon Islands to enhance its agricultural and food security and has endorsed future work with Fiji, Papua New Guinea and the Cook Islands. The Adaptation Fund was designed to finance adaptation projects and programs in developing countries that are particularly vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change, including Pakistan. Funding to these initiatives is to flow over financial years 2011-12 and 2012-13. A number of African countries are also receiving support through the Adaptation Fund including Eritrea and Senegal.Australia Adaptation Fund Adaptation 15.000AUDUpdate 2011

 Investments are primarily made via regional adaptation funding. A$16.5 million fast-start funding (of a total A$17.5 million commitment) has been allocated, and adaptation projects are currently being programmed. These projects focus on supporting regional partners and communities in the Caribbean to address vulnerabilities associated with climate change, and to assist in natural disaster preparation and response planning. This includes an allocation of A$2.3 million to Caribsave, the Caribbean Community Climate Change Centre and the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency, for activities that will improve the capacity of Caribbean countries to reduce their vulnerability and enhance their resilience to natural disasters.AustraliaCaribbean  Adaptation 16.500AUDUpdate 2011

 The World Bank Forest Carbon Partnership Facility: Australia supports the World Bank’s Forest Carbon Partnership Facility (FCPF), a global partnership of governments, businesses, civil society, and indigenous peoples established to provide financial and technical assistance to countries seeking to build their capacity to effectively implement REDD+. National ownership is well evidenced at the FCPF, where features such as the Readiness Plan Proposal process encourage countries to identify their specific capacity and support needs to implementing REDD+ at the national level. This country-driven process encourages ownership of the process from the national government down to the local community level. In ensuring this shared ownership, REDD+ is given the best chance to flourish throughout a country.Australia  World Bank Forest Carbon Partnership Facility REDD+44.600AUD2013

 The remaining A$80 million of adaptation investments in the Pacific are projected to be disbursed over the next two financial years. These will support a range of activities, including: A$32 million to support climate change science and adaptation planning to provide better information regarding climate risks and to build resilience to future climate change. A$30 million for bilateral investments that will focus on integrating climate risk and adaptation into key development sectors, including food and water security and infrastructure protection, for concrete on-the-ground actions. A$11 million to partner with non-government organisations (NGOs) to meet local level adaptation needs.
