The Partnership on Transparency in the Paris Agreement (PATPA, formerly known as the International Partnership on Mitigation and MRV) was founded in 2010 at the Petersberg Climate Dialogue by Germany, South Africa, and the Republic of Korea and is a semi-formal forum that supports international efforts to engage in practical exchanges and political dialogue on climate transparency. More than 120 countries participate in its various activities. Following the entry into force of the Paris Agreement in 2016, the Partnership focused on its implementation, and particularly on the rollout of the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF).
