The climate assistance service responds to requests from developing countries and government authorities. Technical and other institutions and organizations that cooperate directly with national governments to plan and implement their NDCs, LEDS or transparency systems may also request assistance if they are approved by the UNFCCC`s national contact point or the Ministry of the Environment. In this context, the project develops appropriate formats, organizes conferences and workshops, and provides analysis, knowledge products and successful case studies on the transparency and implementation of NDCs. It therefore makes an important contribution to international learning and to link climate protection, biodiversity, disaster risk management and sustainable development goals (SDGs) around the world. With its activities, SPA reaches a wide audience worldwide. The experience gained and lessons learned are incorporated into international discussions on the implementation of climate policy and the UNFCCC negotiation process. As a cross-cutting advisory project, SPA continuously exchanges information between initiatives, fosters cooperation between stakeholders and creates synergies. In all areas, the project contributes to capacity building by providing advisory services and exchange platforms. It also collects and disseminates knowledge and case studies on climate policy. With regard to the NDC partnership, the project supported countries` engagement processes in more than 40 developing countries. The resulting “partnership plans” represent national objectives for the implementation of NPOs and identify contributions from internationally funded projects.
This highlights funding gaps and provides the means to improve donor coordination. The project is linked to projects funded under the International Climate Initiative projects that have been included in the partnership plans of 16 countries. The project also houses the LEDS GP secretariat and supports dialogue between national representatives. Project experts provide targeted technical support in regional and current working groups, such as low-carbon mobility and energy, private investment mobilization and sustainable rural development and land use. To significantly limit global warming, the Paris Agreement must be implemented quickly and effectively. This is a major challenge that can only be met if all countries commit to cooperation. The international community is therefore helping developing countries meet their commitments. In addition to direct climate financing, it supports dialogue between national representatives and the development of knowledge, capacity and access to finance.
To this end, the Community has launched global initiatives and other actions. Global initiatives help partner countries implement their national contributions to climate change mitigation, develop national systems for measuring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions, and implement climate change measures.
