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 
AOSISAustralia has also allocated A$1.5 million in fast-start funding to support the secretariat of the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS), with A$0.5 million already disbursed, as it represents the interests of SIDS in international negotiations.Australia     0.500AUDUpdate 2011

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 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

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

ASEAN, ThailandThe project promotes low-carbon patterns of consumption and production in Thailand and other ASEAN states by developing criteria for climate-smart products and services. These criteria are to be applied to particularly climate-relevant product groups within the states’ existing ecolabelling systems, and are to be used as a basis for public procurement. Thailand’s government has set up a corresponding programme, among other related activities. Criteria development is the bottleneck in this process. The project’s goal is to substantially improve climate performance on both the production and consumption side. Experience gained with the German ‘Blue Angel’ ecolabel scheme will be utilised to ensure optimised labelling, awareness-raising and marketing strategies for climate-smart products. Existing label schemes such as the Thai Green Label will be expanded and harmonised.GermanyAsia Regional GIZMitigation 2.000EUR201305/2012-06/2015

 The programme provides advisory services to the further development and implementation of international and national biodiversity policies from a sustainable development perspective, and supports the integration of biodiversity-related objectives and activities into projects and programmes in partner countries. This includes approaches to the protection of ecosystems, to the sustainable use of biological diversity, and to issues of ecosystem-based adaptation and the mitigation potential of healthy and well-managed ecosystems. The project further develops capacity building tools, and supports partner countries and organisation in developing Access and Benefit Sharing (ABS) regulations and approaches for the benefit of local communities and the conservation of biodiversity.GermanyGlobal GIZAdaptationAll2.300EUR20132010-2012

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
