Mitigation Momentum I - Bringing a range of supported mitigation activities in selected countries to the next level
As of: August 2020
Objective and activities
The project helped governments in five developing countries to further develop their portfolio of proposals for nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs). In addition, it planned specific activities and tapped sources of funding for their implementation. On the basis of numerous case studies, the project also analysed instruments in place with regard to NAMA design, financing and implementation, and published studies on the experience gained, such as the NAMA Annual Status Report. The project helped the partner countries design their NAMAs in a bankable manner and prepare the ground for their implementation. At the same time, the specific features of the mitigation instruments were still under negotiation at the international climate negotiations. This allowed the acquired knowledge to be fed into the international and national processes, driving them forward. The established standards could now serve as models for NAMA projects worldwide.
Mitigation Momentum II
State of implementation/results
- Project completed.
- Side events during the climate negotiations have convened and engaged the international NAMA practitioners, promoting the exchange of ideas and experiences as well as mutual learning
- Technical publications on NAMAs and financing, as well as the NAMA Annual Status Report (twice a year, overview of global status of NAMA development) have been produced as contributions to the international NAMA debate
- Support for the five partner countries in developing their NAMA concepts:
1) Kenya: combination of financing mechanisms and capacity building to create incentives for private sector participation in geothermal energy generation. 2) Indonesia: NAMA on small renewable energy (RE) projects in North Sumatra as part of the provincial government's climate change action plan. 3) Chile: financing mechanism and technical cooperation programme for the promotion of RE projects for self-supply within the industry and trade sectors. 4) Peru: comprehensive waste-to-energy programme (energy generation from agricultural waste) as part of the national strategy for renewable energies. 5) Tunisia: NAMA on energy conservation in the building sector.
