Mitigation Momentum II

Objective and activities

The aim of the project is to support the development of nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) within the context of national low-carbon development strategies in the partner countries, as well as to improve the corresponding institutional structures and planning processes. The project thereby supports the partner countries in increasing their contribution to global climate change mitigation. To this end, the project is working to develop effective strategies for financing mitigation activities. Furthermore, it seeks to communicate best practices related to implementation and financing of mitigation strategies, and is contributing to the global dialogue on this issue.

Phase II builds on the successes of Mitigation Momentum I, an IKI project that supported Chile, Indonesia, Kenya, Peru and Tunisia in developing NAMA proposals. In the second project phase, these proposals (with the exception of Chile) will continue to be supported in regards to financing and implementation, and in some cases additional NAMAs will be developed. In addition, new partner countries have been added (Ethiopia, Georgia, and Thailand) which will develop additional NAMAs with the project’s support. 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.
