Framework for Measuring Sustainable Development in NAMAs

The research project ‘Measuring sustainable development (SD) in Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs)’ was initiated by the NAMA Partnership Working Group on Sustainable Development (WG-SD) with the aim to improve quantitative and qualitative measurement of the SD outcomes of NAMAs.

The objective of the report is to develop a framework with criteria and indicators for the assessment of the SD impacts of NAMAs, based on a review of the literature on ustainability assessment tools and approaches, and a study of the different stakeholder perspectives among developing country governments, support agencies, the private sector and civil society organisations.

Research for this project was carried out jointly by the UNEP DTU Partnership (UDP) in collaboration with the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) and was supported by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
