Mitigation Momentum II
Objective and activities
The project supports nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) in the partner countries and improves the institutional structures, supporting the partner countries in increasing their contribution to global climate change mitigation. To this end, the project is developing strategies for financing mitigation activities. Furthermore, it seeks to communicate best practices related to implementation and financing of mitigation strategies. Phase II builds on Mitigation Momentum I, which supported Chile, Indonesia, Kenya, Peru and Tunisia in developing NAMA proposals. These proposals (with the exception of Chile) will continue to be supported regarding financing and implementation, and in some cases additional NAMAs will be developed. Additional countries developing NAMAs are Ethiopia, Georgia, and Thailand. Through the NAMA Annual Status Report published by the project and specific research on NAMA-related topics, the project is also informing the international debate on NAMAs.
