NAMA database Wiki

The NAMA database shares information on Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) happening around the world, so that countries and other participants are able to learn from these experiences and gain insights into how mitigation activities can be undertaken within the NAMA framework.

The information presented is collected from publicly available information on NAMA related activities. It does not represent official submissions and may not reflect the priorities of the country government. This database is linked to the Transport NAMA Database, where more details can be found about NAMAs in the transport sector.

NAMAs are policies, programs and projects that developing countries undertake to contribute to the global effort to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

Paragraph 1 (b) (ii) of the Bali Action Plan called for ‘nationally appropriate mitigation actions’ (NAMAs) by developing country parties in the context of sustainable development, supported and enabled by technology, financing and capacity building, in a measurable, reportable and verifiable manner.

In Copenhagen in 2009, 114 countries agreed to the Copenhagen Accord and committed to undertaking mitigation actions as part of a shared responsibility to reduce GHG emissions, including an agreement that support should be provided to developing countries. In Cancun in 2010, developed countries agreed to provide $30 billion in fast-start financing and mobilize $100 billion per year by 2020 to finance mitigation and adaptation in developing countries.

Developed countries have committed to supporting meaningful mitigation actions in developing countries through financing, technology transfer and capacity building. The policy framework around NAMAs is still being developed but NAMAs are set to become a building block for a future climate agreement.
