Annual Status Report on NAMAs

Since the birth of the NAMA concept back in Bali in 2007 and its formalisation in the Copenhagen Accord and Cancun Agreements, many countries have started to develop NAMA ideas and proposals. But there are no formalised processes and only few guidelines on NAMAs are available.

The bottom-up NAMA activities by countries provide valuable experiences and insights for the development of the international policy architecture. The Annual Status Report intends to capture these activities and experiences, building on the knowledge of three organisations closely involved in the development of NAMAs and the associated policy debate.

The report includes an up to date snapshot of current NAMA developments around the world as well as an analysis and overview of lessons learned in NAMA development. Here the focus lies on supported NAMAs as these provide the most valuable insights into the way in which climate cooperation between developed and developing countries could work. In addition the report gives an overview of the current state of the political debate around NAMAs, highlighting the main open issues and possible ways forward.
