Status Report on Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs)

Midyear Update June 2013

Published: 10/06/2013

This mid-year update of the Status Report on Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) by Ecofys and ECN was launched at the Bonn Climate Change Conference in June 2013. It shows that NAMAs are becoming an increasingly attractive vehicle for developing countries looking to attract climate finance for low-carbon development activities. The Status Report tracked progress in the development of NAMAs and the expansion of support.   

The development of NAMAs continues to increase since the last report was launched. The Ecofys NAMA database currently holds information on 66 NAMAs, up from 35 in November. The large increase in numbers is largely due to the introduction of the prototype UNFCCC NAMA registry in 2012, which has incentivised countries to submit NAMAs.

The most significant developments on NAMA support since the last Status Report was published in November 2012 include the launch of the NAMA Facility, a €70 million fund designed to support the implementation of transformational, country-led NAMAs; and the NAMA Partnership, a group of multilateral organisations, bilateral cooperation agencies and think-tanks who will focus on information and knowledge sharing to deliver know-how in support of developing country NAMAs.
