At the 15th Conference of the Parties to the Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP15) in Copenhagen in 2009, the industrialised nations pledged to provide USD 100 billion annually for climate protection and adaptation measures in developing countries from 2020. This means that the industrialised countries, and thus also Germany, have reporting obligations to the UNFCCC, OECD and EU. The BMZ calculates the amount of bilateral funds in the climate sector on the basis of the OECD’s so-called climate indicators (“Rio markers”). GIZ supports BMZ in these reporting obligations.
TYPE AND SCOPE OF SERVICES
Arepo supports GIZ’s Climate Policy Support Project in carrying out quality assurance of the allocation of climate indicators in German development cooperation for the reporting years 2021 and 2022 for the two climate indicators “climate change mitigation” and “climate change adaptation”. For this purpose, Arepo examines projects with regard to their climate impact.
