Publication date:

Type of publication:

Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) are fast becoming the climate finance vehicle of choice to help developing countries transition to low carbon, climate resilient futures. Developing countries, their development partners and other actors in and around the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) are working to operationalise the concept to leverage domestic climate finance with bilateral and multilateral support, and through carbon markets. The guidebook provides easy-to-follow instructions to help practitioners successfully identify and prioritise financeable NAMAs based on real experience and a proven track record of success. The step-by-step guide is based on technical expertise and lessons learned gathered from the International Institute for Sustainable Development’s work in Kenya, Bangladesh, Trinidad and Tobago, and Congo Basin countries including Democratic Republic of Congo and Rwanda.
