Indirect mitigation potential

Indirect greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction achieved by the NAMA Support Project (NSP) capture emission reductions beyond those related to direct investments, e.g., resulting from technical assistance. Hence, potential emission reductions that fall in the following categories:

  • Results of technical cooperation (TC) component during and after NSP period
  • Results of financial cooperation (FC) component but only for units installed / measures implemented after NSP end, as result of the continuation of the financial mechanism

Timing includes:

  • Technical cooperation: during NSP period and during period of 10 years after NSP end, (during lifetime: optional)
  • Financial cooperation: for units installed after NSP end for period 10 years after NSP end, (during lifetime: optional)


Quantitative or qualitative indicators provide evidence on the achievement of results. Indicators add greater precision to the project goals and serve as a binding standard for measuring the attainment of goals and thus the success of the NAMA Support Project (NSP). The NAMA Facility Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) framework defines three types of indicators: core mandatory indicators, sector-specific outcome indicators and project-specific output indicators. All indicators have to be SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound). Please refer to the NAMA Facility M&E framework for further information.

Implementing Partners (IPs)

Implementing partners are national (sector) ministries, financial institutions such as regional or national (development) banks and other public and/or private entities mandated by the national government to implement and operate the NAMA Support Project (NSP). The strong involvement and ownership of the national government and implementing partners is considered to be essential for the success of the NSP.


The implementation of a NAMA Support Project (NSP) refers to the stage when the project concept, measures and activities are sufficiently developed and prepared to get started on the ground.

Impacts (long-term results)

Long-term direct and indirect effects of the NAMA Support Project (NSP) that reflect the ambition criteria: potential for transformational change including sustainable development co-benefits, financial ambition and mitigation ambition.
