The 4th Call of the NAMA Facility closed on 31 October 2016. National governments and other qualified applicants were invited to submit NAMA Support Project Outlines. The response to the Call was unprecedented as a total number of 75 NAMA Support Project Outlines were submitted. The number of submissions indicates a high interest of countries in NAMA implementation, and reflects the impetus deriving from the Paris Agreement. Many national governments directly refer to the Paris Agreement or their Nationally Determined Contributions in their endorsement letters as the basis for their motivation to implement NAMAs.
The NAMA Facility provides tailor-made support for the implementation of highly ambitious and transformational NAMAs in developing countries. The Facility conducts competitive calls and selects the most ambitious and promising NAMA Support Projects for funding.
So far, the NAMA Facility has made three calls for projects and 14 NAMA Support Projects are now receiving support. The selected NAMA Support Projects represent the most advanced and ambitious NAMAs worldwide.
NAMA Support Projects supported by the NAMA Facility need to fit into the context of a broader NAMA and neet to have the potential to catalyse transformational change in a partner country towards a low-carbon development path.
