As of: October 2016
NAMA programme for Asia's construction sector
Objective and activities
The project supports the participating Asian countries in the development of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in the field of energy efficiency for the building sector.
In close cooperation with partners and other relevant stakeholders, appropriate measures for the development of NAMAs are identified. In addition, the project partners are introducing a standardized measurement, reporting and verification methodology for greenhouse gas reduction in the building sector. This approach builds upon the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and the Common Carbon Metric for buildings (developed by UNEP and other partners).
Regional workshops and a web-based knowledge platform, that will be set up in the course of the project strengthen the exchange of experience on NAMAs, the building sector as well as the dissemination of knowledge in the region and beyond.
State of implementation/results
- Analysis reports on the building sector carried out in Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia.
- A series of workshops in all four partner countries as well as regional workshops contributed to defining the thematic focus of the planned NAMAs in close cooperation with partners and stakeholders. As a result, the development of specific NAMA concept proposals was initiated.
- A NAMA manual with a focus on energy efficiency in the building sector is under development.
- Methodologies for baseline calculation and the measuring and modeling of GHG emissions in the building sector were refined and discussed with partners, experts and other MRV initiatives. Buildings for the application of the MRV methodology have been selected in Thailand, Vietnam and Indonesia. Training sessions on MRV for GHG reduction carried out.
- The project has been presented at various expert forums, and intermediate results of the project have been discussed with the expert communities.
