Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions
From Open Energy Information
"Paragraph 1 (b) (ii) of the Bali Action Plan calls for “Nationally appropriate mitigation actions’ by developing country Parties in the context of sustainable development, supported and enabled by technology, financing and capacity building, in a measurable, reportable and verifiable manner."
"In many discussions and submissions, NAMAs have been categorized as follows:
- Unilateral NAMAs: mitigation actions undertaken by developing countries on their own
- Supported NAMAs: mitigation actions in developing countries, supported by direct climate finance from Annex I countries (in the following called ‘directly supported NAMAs’)
- Credited NAMAs: mitigation actions in developing countries, which generate credits to be sold on the carbon market (e.g. sectoral crediting).
- Developing countries will effectively implement national action depends on the effective implementation of the commitments."
