New Publication Launched: Institutional aspects of NAMA development and implementation

April 7, 2014

Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) have become a key concept for mitigation efforts in the context of the negotiations of a new global agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). However, a number of countries do not have the capacity and the resources to develop a national low carbon development strategy. Several of these countries are taking action on NAMAs in a more individual manner, and many countries need urgent support for strategy development in the form of capacity development and structured international guidance.

This publication presents an analyses of how developing countries may arrange their institutional and organizational structures or enhance the existing ones in order to deal with new developments under the international climate change mitigation regime. Authored by Miriam L.Hinostroza, Sudhir Sharma and Maryna Karavai, it focuses on how to ensure the implementation of NAMAs as vehicles for transformative and long lasting change.

The publication aims to supplement the recently published ‘Guidance for NAMA design, building on country experiences‘, a joint effort by UNDP, UNFCCC and the UNEP Risø Centre.
