Technical Support Unit

The Technical Support Unit (TSU) serves as the secretariat and portfolio manager and supports the Board in its management. The TSU functions as a focal point for partner governments, implementing partners, NAMA Support Organisations and other stakeholders. It is responsible for the development of processes and documents with regard to the overall project cycle of the NAMA Facility, organising Calls for Projects, steering the assessment of NAMA Support Project (NSP) Outlines and Proposals, monitoring and evaluation, reporting to Donors and knowledge management and communication.

NAMA Facility Grant Agent

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is the designated NAMA Facility Grant Agent (NFGA). This mandate includes managing the NAMA Facility funding and staffing the TSU. As any eligible organisation, GIZ may also function as NAMA Support Organisations (NSOs) with regard to individual NSPs. The NFGA will contract qualified organisations and channel the funds for the NSP’s Detailed Preparation Phase (DPP) and its implementation of an NSP selected by the Board. This is necessary in order to safeguard the underlying contractual arrangements of the NAMA Facility and meet the donors’ requirements.

NAMA Facility Information Policy

The NAMA Facility aims to provide fair and equal access and treatment to all applicants and stakeholders.

In line with our objective to be open and transparent, we publish NAMA Facility documents on the NAMA Facility’s website, e.g. the NAMA Facility Mid-Term Evaluation Report and Management  Response, Executive Summaries of the NAMA Facility’s Annual Reports and the Monitoring and Evaluation Framework.

The NAMA Facility strives to become a learning hub. To pursue this objective, the NAMA Facility offers feedback calls to all applicants to our Calls for outlines. We understand this feedback as a two-way process, fostering learning for stakeholders as well as for the NAMA Facility itself. Furthermore, the NAMA Facility makes available lessons learnt and analysis on various topics in the format of webinars, factsheets and workshops. Visit the Knowledge & Learning Hub.

The NAMA Facility provides updates on the latest developments and calls for proposals via the NAMA Facility mailing list that is open to everybody interested in the NAMA Facility. It also disseminates lessons learnt through active participation in relevant international fora and meetings such as United Nations Climate Change Conferences, regional Carbon Forums etc.

The compliance management and integrity of the NAMA Facility is ensured by the NAMA Facility Grant Agent. This includes an external ombudsman. These resources can be contacted directly and anonymously.
