A Partnership to Foster Innovation
The 19 Implementing Country Participants are middle income countries that receive funding and technical support from the PMR. Thirteen Contributing Participants contribute funding and share relevant experience. Together, these two groups make up the Partnership Assembly (PA), the PMR's decision-making body.
The partnership also includes a third participant category—the Technical Partner. Technical Partners represent countries or sub-national jurisdictions that are at an advanced stage of carbon mitigation policy development. While they do not participate in decision-making, they provide valuable lessons and ground truthing and are an important contribution to the PMR's knowledge exchange.
The PMR also benefits from the knowledge, experience and participation of Observers. PMR Observers are countries, multilateral development banks, UN organizations and other non-governmental organizations that join the dialogue on market readiness and market-based approaches at PMR meetings and events. A growing group of Technical Experts provides feedback on country proposals and facilitates learning during workshops and trainings.
