Reference guide for good NAMA practice

adelphi and perspectives have developed a NAMA sourcebook. The reference guide for good practice is aimed at project and programme developers working in the area of climate protection at the Deutsche Gesellschaft fuer Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).


Continuing climate change is creating an ever-greater need for climate protection activities – both in industrial and developing countries. Major development organisations are increasingly supporting projects and programmes with nationally appropriate mitigation measures. In order to provide teams planning and implementing climate protection projects and programmes with a practical foundation to develop “NAMAs” (nationally appropriate mitigation actions), adelphi and its partner organisation perspectives are compiling a sourcebook on behalf of the GIZ which is geared towards the specifications of Capacity Works, a management model for sustainable development.

The handbook addresses political processes and stakeholders which are important to the development of NAMAs as well as technical elements. It also draws attention to financing and implementation of projects. The sourcebook is available online.
