NAMA Facility Issues First Call for Project Proposals
18 July 2013: The NAMA Facility, an initiative supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) of the UK, has launched its first call for project proposals with the aim of fostering implementation of developing countries' nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs).
The objective of the call is to provide funding for NAMA implementation in developing countries and incentivize leadership in climate change through ambitious and concrete actions. To be considered for the first open call, developing countries' governments or delivery organizations must submit NAMA projects by 2 September 2013.
The initial funding contributed by the UK and Germany is Euro 70 million. The selection process of projects will consist of a two-stage assessment. [NAMA Facility Open Call] [Background Information on the NAMA Facility and the Selection Process] [IISD RS Story on the Launch of the NAMA Facility]
