PAREMIA – Partnerships for ambitious resilience and mitigation action
Implementing climate protection more efficiently
© GermanwatchWhere individual countries reach their limits in implementing the SDGs and the Paris goals, Germany can support the necessary transformation to net-zero emissions and resilient societies through bilateral or multilateral partnerships. This can also boost Germany's own ambition.
How can the goals be made more ambitious?
Who defines the partners?

Global efforts to realise rapid emission reductions and build resilience must be ramped up without further delay to meet the 1.5 °C Paris target and enable vulnerable communities to deal with climate impacts. Where individual states reach their limits in implementing the SDGs and Paris objectives, bilateral or multilateral partnerships can provide support for the necessary transformation to net-zero-emission and resilient societies. Partnerships are indispensable to achieve whole-societal transformation, as they enable countries to share knowledge, experience and resources. Germany entertains solid climate cooperation with several countries in the Global South. In this study, we analyse preconditions for such partnerships with 13 countries and suggest thematic starting points for three of them – Chile, India and South Africa.
We thank Germanwatch for the trustful cooperation and congratulate the project team on the successful study publication. Together, we hope that it can contribute to making climate protection and resilience more ambitious worldwide.
