More specifically, DevCo funding is used to allow direct marketing, planning and development of transactions. Moreover, DevCo often comes in when a poorly prepared and under-resourced initiative has failed. DevCo's biggest sectors of activity are energy and transport, accounting for almost 70% of its commitments.

 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

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
