Three projects were pre-approved from the NAMA Facility’s third call for applications. In Colombia the NAMA Facility will support the acceleration of a 100% phase-in of natural refrigerants used in refrigerators in only three years. In China the NAMA Facility is supporting its first support project in the waste management sector, introducing integrated waste management in connection with a wider national investment programme to improve waste management in general. Finally, the NAMA Facility is supporting a transport project in Kenya, helping address congestion in Nairobi by co-financing the development of a Bus Rapid Transport system... more

Third Call: Assessment of submitted NAMA Support Project Outlines finalized

The Third Call for NAMA Support Project Outlines closed on 15 July 2015.

In total, 42 Outlines have been received and assessed against the selection criteria of the NAMA Facility. Final results will be communicated at the COP 21 in Paris during the reception of the NAMA Facility, on 7 December 2015.

The NAMA Facility is looking forward to seeing you there.

Stakeholder Consultation – Proceedings and Outcomes

As part of the stocktaking a closed consultation was organized in October 2015 among stakeholders from finance, institutions and think tanks central to climate finance. The discussions were frank and yielded insights that are thought to be of interest to a broader audience. We therefore publish the proceedings of the meeting here, underscoring that the views presented are not necessarily shared by the NAMA Facility, nor the donors supporting it. 

Please find the proceedings and outcomes here 

Who we are and what we do

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.

The NAMA Facility is a joint programme of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB), the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate (EFKM) and the European Commission.

NAMA Support Projects

So far, the NAMA Facility has made two calls for projects and 9 NAMA Support Projects are now receiving support. The selected NAMA Support Projects represent the most advanced and ambitious NAMAs worldwide. They cover different sectors such as transport, renewable energy, agriculture and forestry, and come from a range of countries. The NAMA Facility is currently supporting NSPs in Mexico, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Chile, Colombia, Peru, Thailand, Burkina Faso and Tajikistan.

Potential for transformational change

NAMA Support Projects supported by the NAMA Facility need to fit into the context of a broader NAMA and need to have the potential to catalyse transformational change in a partner country towards a low-carbon development path.

The potential for transformational change is one of the central criteria considered when evaluating the goals of a NAMA Support Project.
