Feb 12, 2016Access to Clean Energy Through Market-Based Solutions in GhanaThe Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) on “Access to clean energy through establishment of market based solutions” has the potential to bring about a transformational change in the sector, resulting in emissions reductions, promoting sustainable development and increased access to clean energy technologies for communities in Ghana. Implementation of the NAMA will be led by various ministries and government agencies and will include the private sector, communities and cooperatives. The Ministry of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation (MESTI) will act as National Coordinating Authority (NCA) and perform all strategic functions relating to this NAMA.
Nov 18, 2015NAMA for the Renewable Energy Sector of Lao PDRThe NAMA for the renewable energy sector supports Lao PDR in achieving the goal defined in the Rural Electrification Master Plan, namely to provide access to electricity to more than 90 per cent of households in Lao PDR by 2020. The NAMA will not only reduce GHG emissions through the replacement of fossil fuels with renewables but also support rural communities through the promotion of tourism, agricultural facilities, health centres, and literacy centres.
Sep 11, 2015NAMA on Rural Electrification in VanuatuThe overall target of the NAMA is to support Vanuatu in achieving the goal defined in the National Energy Road Map (NERM). The NAMA will not only replace fossil fuels with renewable energies but will also significantly contribute to Sustainable Development (SD) benefits, such as improvement of the situation of groups with specific vulnerabilities, women and the poor.
Aug 4, 2015Energy Efficiency NAMA in the Garment Industry in CambodiaThe overall objective of the NAMA is to support Cambodia´s energy efficiency policy and to improve efficiency in the industrial sector and to build capacity in the field of energy efficiency. The introduction of efficient sewing, washing, drying machines and compressors will improve energy efficiency in motor driven systems and will decrease GHG emissions by reducing the use of electricity.
Jul 18, 2015NAMA on Rural Development in Namibia through Electrification with Renewable EnergiesThe 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.
Jun 26, 2015Rural Electrification with Renewable Energy in The GambiaThe 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.
May 1, 2015Adaptation and Mitigation Initiatives in Philippine Rice CultivationThe 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.
Dec 4, 2014Greening the Charcoal Value Chains of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire – a NAMA approachCharcoal 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.
