Nama Paris Agreement

At COP 15 2009, 114 countries approved the Copenhagen agreement and pledged to take action to combat climate change as part of a shared responsibility to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including a financial aid agreement to developing countries. [2] The Copenhagen climate change conference did not follow through on the comprehensive agreement under the Bali Roadmap. However, the Copenhagen Agreement maintained the concept of NAMA, but in a narrower definition that applies only to countries that do not have Schedule 1, and it has not been specified what form they should take:[2][3] A list of NAMAs is available on www.nama-database.org/. NAMAs should be understood as processes that can only be successful through concerted and ongoing action and the cooperation of several interest groups. “Efforts to reduce emissions in developing countries are not new. The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) has been used for more than a decade in many developing countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through project-based approaches to introduce clean technologies, including renewable energy, and to improve the efficiency of many greenhouse gas emission processes. Unlike the CDM, NAMAs should not be project-based. NAMAs do not necessarily deal with sources of emissions or involve the issuance of emission credits to be purchased and sold on the carbon market. An NAMA is simply any measure that ultimately contributes to reducing greenhouse gas emissions while meeting a country`s development needs. While an NAMA may include a specific project or a short-term emission reduction measure, it may include research strategies, strategies and programs that result in long-term emission reductions.

[12] More detailed information on the initiative will be published shortly. India argued that NAMA involves voluntary reductions by developing countries, which must be supported and made possible by technology transfers from developed countries. [5] By definition, NAMAs will vary from country to country. Indonesia could, for example, focus on integrating climate change policy with other aspects of economic development, such as the gradual reduction of oil subsidies. B, poverty reduction by promoting alternative incomes to reduce illegal logging and the wider use of the country`s renewable resources, especially geothermal energy. [4] The Indian government recognizes the relevance of climate change and, in recent years, climate policy has gained attention in the country. The National Climate Change Action Plan was launched in 2008 to help Indian governments develop national action plans on climate change. Internationally, increasing attention has focused on a promising instrument called Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while encouraging sustainable development in emerging and developing countries. On 10 December 2018, donors launched NAMA`s 6th call for support projects in Katowice, Poland, at the NAMA COP24 secondary event.

The United Kingdom and Germany are once again planning to contribute EUR 80 million to the 6th appeal. During the event, donors also stressed their commitment to supporting the nama facility until 2020 and beyond.
