Representatives of the NAMA Facility went to Mexico for the second regional NAMA Support Project (NSP) workshop. Co-organised by the Mexican NSP “Energy efficiency in small and medium enterprises as a contribution to a low carbon economy”, the meeting brought together representatives from seven countries, primarily from the Latin America & Caribbean region as well as the NAMA Facility’s Board and the Technical Support Unit.
Gathering energy efficiency professionals, economists, engineers, and agriculture experts, coming from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Palestine, the workshop fomented international, cross-cutting dialogue on the fight against climate change.
During the three-day workshop, the Technical Support Unit (TSU), the NAMA Facility’s portfolio manager, and its NAMA Support Projects (NSPs) exchanged views on different topics relevant to monitoring, gender and knowledge management.
The workshop sessions were composed of presentations from NAMA Support Projects in the Latin America & Caribbean region and working groups led by the TSU on gender and monitoring topics. The TSU also provided an open format for project representatives to raise additional topics of interest, highlighting how the NAMA Facility places value on open communication.
