Energy Efficiency NAMA in the Garment Industry in Cambodia
The Ministry of Industry & Handicraft and UNDP MDG Carbon have issued the NAMA on Energy Efficiency in the Garment Industry in Cambodia.
Cambodia´s garment industry contributes approximately 19 per cent to the national GDP and 72 per cent of the country’s exports and is Cambodia´s most important manufacturing sector.
The 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.
The outcomes of this NAMA with regards to Sustainable Development and GHG Emission Reductions are strongly interrelated building blocks as a pathway of a change framework that shall ensure that the NAMA is fully embedded in national development goals.
