NAMA study for a sustainable charcoal value chain in Côte d’Ivoire

This study aims to help Côte d’Ivoire to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the current charcoal value chain and enable the country to remove a major driver of deforestation while increasing energy security and sustainability. The Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) design proposed in this study also addresses cross-sectoral issues and adopts a phased approach. It is argued that the NAMA Phase I described in the study is realistic, can be achieved in the short term and still has transformative and sustainable effects on the charcoal sector of Côte d’Ivoire.
