NAMA Study for Sustainable Charcoal Value Chain in Côte d’Ivoire

Nov 5, 2015

MDG Carbon jointly with the regional environment project on the Management of Environmental Services and Financing for Sustainable Development has released a new NAMA study to help Côte d’Ivoire 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.


The NAMA design proposed in this study also addresses cross-sectoral issues and adopts a phased approach. The NAMA Phase I described in the study is realistic, can be achieved in the short term and still has transformative and sustainable effects on the charcoal sector of Côte d’Ivoire.
