The overall target of the NAMA is to support Namibia in achieving the goal defined in the Off-Grid Energisation Master Plan (OGEMP). The NAMA will reduce GHG emissions through the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energies and will provide the conditions for income generation and new business opportunities. This will also lead to enhanced private sector involvement.
The overall target of the NAMA is to support The Gambia to achieve the objectives of the Vision 2020. The NAMA for ‘Rural Electrification with Renewable Energy in The Gambia’ offers the country the opportunity to accelerate access to electricity through small-scale, off-grid and stand-alone projects, as well as income-generating opportunities for the local population.
The Adaptation and Mitigation Initiatives in Agriculture (AMIA) in this report are designed for a sector – rice cultivation – that is extremely vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and commonly associated with food security. The introduction of Alternative Wetting and Drying in these flooded irrigated rice fields will lead to sizeable mitigation effect, decreasing GHG emissions from rice cultivation by close to 25 per cent.
Charcoal remains one of the most important sources of fuel in Sub-Saharan Africa including Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire. A look through the supply chain highlights the inter-linkages with issues of energy, deforestation, employment and other socio-economic and environmental challenges. The infographics visualize how a NAMA can provide an exciting opportunity to develop a ‘sustainable charcoal value chain’ through a combined approach of policies, technology intervention, finance and capacity building.
The NAMA study shall help Côte d’Ivoire to identify solutions to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the current charcoal value chain and enable the country to remove a major driver of deforestation while increasing energy security and sustainability.
