1st-3rd Call

Results of the third call

The Nama Facility Board has pre-approved five projects from Colombia, China, Guatemala, South Africa and Kenya for funding. In addition to the 5 projects, the NAMA Facility is working with the submitters of a number of other projects to assess the feasibility of these ideas in more depth, and hope to make a further announcement in the first half of 2016.

All 42 projects submitted during the third call for projects were evaluated against pre-determined selection criteria in the fields of eligibility, ambition and feasibility, which ensured that the most ambitious and transformational NAMAs would be selected for funding. In addition, an external assessment was conducted in parallel to ensure a rigorous, transparent and unbiased evaluation. The correctness and transparency of the overall evaluation process was verified by a process audit. Please find the process audit report here.

The pre-selected NAMA Support Projects:

  • Colombia- Domestic refrigeration NAMA Support Project
    The Nama will accelerate a 100 per cent phase-in of natural refrigerants used in refrigerators and a proper waste management of old devices through a producer responsibility scheme in only three years. Learn more
  • China – Integrated waste management NAMA Support Project
    The NAMA Facility is supporting its first support project in the waste management sector, introducing integrated waste management in connection with a wider national investment programme to improve waste management in general. Learn more
  • Guatemala – Efficient Use of Fuel and Alternative Fuels in Indigenous and Rural Communities
    The NAMA Support Project will help to sustainably stimulate the supply and demand for energy efficient cookstoves in Guatemala with tailor-made financial and technical support mechanisms. Learn more
  • Kenya – Mass rapid transport system for Nairobi NAMA Support Project
    This project addresses the congestion in Nairobi by co-financing Kenya’s first Mass Rapid Transit System (MRT) NAMA. The planned NAMA Support Project finances critical components of the first bus line for initiating a transformational change towards a sustainable urban mobility system. Learn more
  • South Africa – Energy Efficiency in Public Buildings Programme (EEPBP)
    The project aims to catalyse an energy efficiency transformation within the South African public sector by providing technical and financial support to identify and implement energy efficiency measures in buildings in a consistent and replicable manner. Learn more

 

Results of the second call

The NAMA Facility Board selected four projects from Burkina Faso, Peru, Tajikistan and Thailand for funding as a result of a transparent and competitive selection process. All 49 projects submitted during the first call were evaluated against pre-determined selection criteria, which ensured that the most ambitious and transformational NAMAs would be selected for funding. In addition, an external assessment to ensure a rigorous, transparent and unbiased evaluation was conducted (see external assessment).

The pre-selected NAMA Support Projects:

  • Burkina Faso – Biomass Energy NAMA Support Project
    The NAMA will contribute to more stable supply chains and continuous, more affordable energy access while addressing one of the main drivers of deforestation: biomass energy. Learn more
  • Peru – Sustainable Urban Transport NAMA Support Project:
    The project supports the development of high quality transport provision and vehicle fleet optimization with a view to halt the trend towards urban sprawl dominated by cars and afflicted by serious traffic jams. Learn more
  • Tajikistan – Forestry NAMA Support Project:
    The NAMA will contribute to the implementation of a forestry reform and aims for reforestation measures as well as the conservation and sustainable management of forests. Learn more
  • Thailand – Refrigeration and Air Conditioning NAMA:
    The NAMA aims for a transformation of the production, sale, servicing and use of refrigeration and air conditioning appliances. Emission reductions will inter alia be achieved through reduced energy consumption and a lower use of refrigerants, which have a high global warming potential. Learn more

 

Results of the first call

The NAMA Facility Board selected four projects from Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Indonesia for funding as a result of a transparent and competitive selection process. All 47 projects submitted during the first call were evaluated against pre-determined selection criteria, which ensured that the most ambitious and transformational NAMAs would be selected for funding. In addition, an external assessment to ensure a rigorous, transparent and unbiased evaluation was conducted (see external assessment).

The pre-selected NAMA Support Projects:

  • Chile – Self-supply Renewable Energy NAMA:
    The NAMA in the energy sector will contribute to increased energy security and independence by financing the expansion of decentralised renewable energy systems for self-supply. Learn more.
  • Colombia – TOD NAMA:
    The Colombian NAMA supports the transformation of urban development in Colombia by demonstrating how transit-oriented urban development can reduce the growth in car traffic by 25–36 per cent and simultaneously improve air quality. Learn more.
  • Costa Rica – Low Carbon Coffee NAMA:
    The project implements climate protection measures in the coffee sector, which is the source of 10 per cent of Costa Rica’s greenhouse gas emissions. Project activities will target the whole production chain from fertilisers to milling technologies. Learn more
  • Indonesia – NAMA SUTRI:
    Indonesia’s Sustainable Urban Transport Program will contribute to transforming urban transport in Indonesia by co-funding transport demand management measures, such as building ‘park and ride’ facilities, sidewalks and bicycle networks. Learn more
