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 
 Australia has recently allocated A$3 million to support a Pacific Standards and Labelling Assistance program to reduce emissions and create a more energy efficient electricity sector in the Pacific.

 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
