  • NAMA for the Renewable Energy Sector of Lao PDRNov 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.

  • NAMA on Rural Electrification in VanuatuSep 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.

  • Energy Efficiency NAMA in the Garment Industry in CambodiaAug 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.

  • NAMA on Rural Development in Namibia through Electrification with Renewable EnergiesJul 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.

  • Rural Electrification with Renewable Energy in The GambiaJun 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.

  • Adaptation and Mitigation Initiatives in Philippine Rice Cultivation 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.

  • Greening the Charcoal Value Chains of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire – a NAMA approachDec 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.

  • Finance Structure and its Management for a Rural Electrification NAMAOct 31, 2014Finance Structure and its Management for a Rural Electrification NAMA

  • NAMA Study for A Sustainable Charcoal Value Chain In GhanaOct 21, 2014NAMA Study for A Sustainable Charcoal Value Chain In GhanaThe NAMA study shall guide Ghana to develop NAMAs along the charcoal value chain, i.e. forest management, production, trade and final consumption.

  • NAMA Study for Sustainable Charcoal Value Chain in Côte d’Ivoire Oct 14, 2014NAMA Study for Sustainable Charcoal Value Chain in Côte d’IvoireThe 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.
