Conference on financing national climate change mitigation measures

The Center for Clean Air Policy (CCAP) and the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Building hosted a high-level conference on nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMA) from 15 to 17 May in Copenhagen. The event was attended by government representatives from Asian and Latin American countries who met with private-sector executives and financial institution representatives to discuss how proposals for NAMAs should be designed in order to attract private sector investment. The discussion provided potential donors with the opportunity to learn about NAMAs currently in the development stage that will soon need financial support for their implementation

Numerous projects of the International Climate Initiative (ICI) also presented their approaches for ambitious NAMAs, giving stakeholders who are currently in the early stages of NAMA preparation useful new ideas and insight for further developing their measures. In addition, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the UK Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) presented the NAMA Facility. The Facility, which is funded with 70 million euros, will be one of the first global instruments for financing the implementation of NAMAs.

The event was organised as part of the Mitigation Action Implementation Network (MAIN) initiative of the ICI.
