The NAMA FACILITY is a multi-donor initiative that offers technical and financial assistance to developing countries and emerging economies showing leadership in tackling climate change.
Specifically, the Facility helps these countries to implement Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs). The objective is to:
i. Strengthen country ownership to deliver carbon-neutral activities and closely align these activities with the country’s NDC and other relevant climate and development plans;
ii. Pilot financing models to overcome market barriers to carbon-neutral development;
iii. Deploy innovative technologies and approaches, which require donor financing to support national development plans; and
iv. Boost participation of the private sector to deliver carbon-neutral activities.
The NAMA Facility has no specific regional or sectoral focus: it supports the most ambitious and promising NAMA Support Projects (NSPs) with a high potential for transformational change (TC) towards a carbon-neutral pathway.
To identify the most promising NSPs, the NAMA Facility conducts competitive Calls for NSP Outlines. The NAMA Facility provides grant support of around EUR 5-20 million. NSPs can apply a full range of instruments of technical and financial cooperation.
The Facility is jointly funded by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the British Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS), the Danish Ministry of Climate, Energy and Utilities (KEFM), the European Commission (EC) and in 2020 by the Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).
Deadline for electronic submission: 31 May 2021, 3 pm (CEST/GMT+2).
