Status report on nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) 2016

Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) have continued to show steady growth in proposals over the past six months, while financing remains limited and implementation lags behind. This is one of the findings of the NAMA Status Report mid-year update which has been launched at the Bonn UN Climate Conference.

The update, written by Ecofys and ECN under the Mitigation Momentum project, takes a look at the role of NAMAs in light of the Paris Agreement, provides a snapshot of the current state of play and includes opinion pieces from government representatives of countries in Africa, Asia, and South America on NAMAs in the new climate landscape. While they state that NAMA development will continue after Paris, some new challenges for NAMAs are also associated with the Paris Agreement. 

The Mitigation Momentum project is part of the International Climate Initiative by the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety.
