 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

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

 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

 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.

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

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

  Energising Development partnership: Australia is supporting the Energising Development partnership (EnDev) to develop sustainable markets for improved cooking technologies in developing countries including in Asia, Africa and Latin America. The unsustainable collection of fuel wood is an important driver of forest degradation. Australia’s support will promote sustainable cooking technologies as well as a better understanding of the relationship between fuel wood use and deforestation and forest degradation. In supporting the EnDev Partnership, Australia is helping to build an existing initiative that has a proven track record in delivering access to sustainable energy. The lead agency for implementing the Partnership is Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) which has a large and well established network in developing countries, ensuring that supported activities are responsive to regional and local as well as national needs.AustraliaAfrica Regional, Asia Regional, Latin America    20.000AUD2013
