One thing we all agree on: NAMAs are diverse!

…but are we any clearer on their format? That issue sadly wasn’t to be resolved at today’s workshop.

Today’s LCA workshop on the diversity of NAMAs offered various Parties including: Brazil, Gambia, Georgia, Bangladesh, AOSIS, Chile and China to demonstrate their current approaches to NAMAs.

Without going into great detail, some issues that were raised:

  • Gambia outlined the potential co-benefits (improved health, energy security) from their proposed NAMAs
  • Implementation Plans  & attribution of these plans in achieving mitigation actions were outlined
  • Can NAMAs and CDM run concurrently?
  • Developing MRV strategies at the time of developing the NAMAs
  • AOSIS highlighted Importance of Common Accounting Rules
  • Republic of Korea: Yes to NAMA Crediting will replace CDM’

And on a positive note, the Chilean presentation included a slide on the MAPS Chile process, which was great to see in the plenary!
