    WHAT IS A NAMA?

    NAMAs – Nationally Appriopriate Mitigation Actions – are voluntary actions targeting effective climate change mitigation in developing and transition countries, which will result in reduced greenhouse gas emissions across different sectors. They are supported and enabled by technology transfer, financing and capacity‐building on the part of industrialized countries. The term “NAMA” was firstly introduced in the Bali Action Plan (BAP) in 2007. Since their inception, NAMAs have been extensively studied and practiced worldwide. One of the strengths of NAMAs is the loose definition that allows flexible approaches with regard to their development and implementation. However, this scope in approaching NAMAs also calls for more detailed guidance. This website serves as a platform for NAMA knowledge and supports practitioners with information on NAMA development and implementation with a focus on Viet Nam. It is part of the MONRE/GIZ project "Creation of an overarching framework for NAMAs and MRV in Viet Nam".

     

    WHY ARE NAMAS OF HIGH RELEVANCE?

    NAMAs play an integral role in implementing the mitigation targets outlined in the Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) under the Paris Climate Agreement and in raising ambitions of sectoral mitigation targets. In addition to their emission reduction impact, NAMAs represent an active contribution to the transition towards a sustainable economy with significant co-benefits such as human health improvements, less air pollution due to reduced motorized traffic, or rural electrification due to the propagation of renewable energy.
