What are NAMAs?
NAMAs (National Appropriate Mitigation Actions) can be a policy, program or project at local, regional or national level that seeks to increase Greenhouse Gas Mitigation projects but do not constitute a binding obligation for developing countries. The concept was introduced at COP 14 (Bali Action Plan). At COP 15 it was agreed to link them to a scheme of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) so that emissions reductions were verifiable, leading to a process less stringent than CDM. NAMAs intend to offer various advantages over the CDM. The main difference is the expansion of the approach, now considered more than an activity, allows for the inclusion of multiple technologies and an extension to the contract period. It also presents a financing alternative for the development of a low carbon economy and allows not only mitigation, but the creation and strengthening of institutional capacity, the development of new programs and policies, the strengthening of regulations and inter-sector connections.
