 Developing countries will be required to measure, report, and verify mitigation actions according to international guidelines, but few have the capacity to do so. The goal of this project is to build the capacity of a set of countries both to inform the design of those guidelines and to implement them at the national level. Our approach will be to define the features of a robust national MRV system; map current national and sectoral systems against those features; engage policy-makers (“top-down”) as well as the private sector and civil society (“bottom-up”) in national stakeholder groups to understand national needs and inform the design of national systems; and build capacity and support in key corporate sectors and civil society to adopt and implement national MRV systems. This "top-down - bottom-up" approach should not only assist in getting guidelines and standards in place, but also build support for the implementation of such guidelines.GermanyGlobal World Resources InstituteMitigation 4.000EUR201301/2011-12/2014

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
