Second call for NAMA Support Project Outlines now open
The second call for NAMA Support Project Outlines of the NAMA Facility opened on 7 April 2014
The NAMA Facility is pleased to announce the launch of its 2nd Call for NAMA Support Project Outlines. National governments of developing countries and emerging economies as well as delivery organisations are invited to submit their NAMA Support Project Outlines to the NAMA Facility by 15 July 2014 (12 pm CEST/GMT+2).
It is the objective of the NAMA Facility to support the concrete implementation of highly ambitious and feasible NAMA Support Projects that fit into the context of a broader NAMA and have the potential to catalyse transformational change towards a low-carbon development. The NAMA Facility has no regional or sectoral focus and is open to fund NAMAs across a range of countries and sectors.
With this objective in mind, the founders of the NAMA Facility decided to hold open competitive calls for NAMA Support Project Outlines and to select the most ambitious and promising NAMA Support Projects for funding. During the competitive selection process, NAMA Support Project Outlines will be considered against general eligibility, ambition and feasibility criteria. NAMA Support Projects pre-selected at this stage will enter the second stage of the selection process, where a full project appraisal will be carried out. Detailed project proposals will then be considered by the NAMA Facility Board before a final funding decision is made. This two-stage process is designed to ensure smooth implementation upon the final funding decision.
Details of the second call:
Duration: 7 April– 15 July 2014
Available funding: EUR 50 million
Focus: implementation of NAMAs
Country focus: developing countries qualifying for ODA
Sector focus: none
Mode of project selection: open, competitive call for NAMA Support Project Outlines, evaluation against general eligibility, ambition and feasibility criteria
Submission to: contact@ nama-facility.org
Deadline for submission: 15 July 2014 (12 pm CEST/GMT+2)
More information including updated templates and guidance here.
Second call for NAMA Support Project Outlines will open in April 2014
Germany and the UK are jointly providing an additional EUR 50 million to support the implementation of NAMAs
As announced during COP 19 in Warsaw, the NAMA Facility will hold a second call for NAMA Support Project Outlines in 2014.
During the competitive selection process, NAMA Support Project Outlines will be considered against general eligibility, ambition and feasibility criteria. NAMA Support Projects pre-selected at this stage will enter a second evaluation stage, where a full project appraisal will be carried out and then considered by the NAMA Facility Board before a final funding decision is made. This two-stage process is designed to ensure smooth implementation upon the final funding decision.
The second call for NAMA Support Project Outlines is possible due to a joint contribution of an additional EUR 50 million by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and the UK Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
The call will be from April 2014 to 15 July 2014, 12 pm (CEST/GMT+2). The exact starting date for the call will be announced shortly.
All relevant documents, including an updated template for NAMA Support Project Outlines as well as additional guidance for the submission of outlines during the second call, will be made available on this website once the call is open.
NAMA Facility announces second call for projects for 2014
A second call for projects was announced during COP 19 in Warsaw
After the successful completion of the first call and thanks to the overwhelmingly positive response to the new initiative, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and the UK Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) decided to make additional funds available for a second call to be held during 2014.
In total, additional funds of €50 million will be available to fund implementation of NAMA Support Projects during the second call of the NAMA Facility.
Based on the experience of the first call, it is quite clear that additional funding is needed for the implementation of NAMAs. More and more countries are preparing their NAMAs, making use of readiness funding and investing national resources in the preparatory activities. Over time, additional NAMAs will leave the readiness phase and to start implementing their projects. The NAMA Facility aims to facilitate the implementation of NAMAs by addressing a funding gap in international climate finance. At the same time the NAMA Facility is looking for ambitious activities that have the potential to transform the respective sector and contribute to the goal of achieving a low-carbon development pathway.
The second call will take place in mid-2014.
More detailed information with regard to the timeframe, the criteria and the templates for NAMA Support Project Outlines will be made available online early 2014.
Side event on ‘Financing the Implementation of Transformational NAMAs through the NAMA Facility’ during COP 19 in Warsaw
Presentation of the NAMA Support Projects selected during the first call
The NAMA Facility Board selected four projects from Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Indonesia for funding based on a transparent and competitive selection process. All projects submitted during the first call were evaluated using pre-determined selection criteria, which ensured that the most ambitious and transformational NAMAs would be selected for funding.
The selected projects were announced during a side-event at the margins of COP 19 in Warsaw in November 2013. Government representatives presented the successful NAMA Support Projects to a very receptive audience. In addition, a representative of the Mexican Environmental Ministry presented the current status of the Mexican EcoCasa NAMA and the progress made over the last year. The Mexican NAMA on Sustainable Housing was announced as a pilot project under the NAMA Facility during last year’s COP in Doha. Its implementation is being supported by KfW and Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.
The joint British-German NAMA Facility was met with great interest by country representatives and practitioners as the first of its kind to offer tailor-made funding for implementing NAMAs and for defining criteria for funding by international donors. During the side-event around 150 participants discussed the individual NAMA activities presented and the processes and criteria of the Facility.

The NAMA Facility joins SBI in-session workshop on NAMAs
The NAMA Facility participated in the SBI work programme to further the understanding of the diversity of NAMAs during COP 19
At COP18, a work programme to further the understanding of the diversity of NAMAs was agreed. The work programme will be implemented over the course of 2013 and 2014.
During COP 19 in Warsaw two in-session workshops were held at which country parties, the UNFCCC Secretariat and other relevant institutions reported on the current status of NAMAs.
A central focus has been on the support needs and options for international support. One of the central pillars of the work programme is to match mitigation actions with financial, technology and capacity building support.
This discussion has often focused on the NAMA registry and its use in facilitating support. A presentation on NAMA Facility activities also addressed this issue.
The NAMA registry lists the support available under the NAMA Facility. A core objective of the NAMA Facility is to actively engage in the international climate talks, to provide funding for ambitious NAMAs that are ready to advance to the implementation stage and to encourage countries to develop these kinds of measures.
The workshop proceedings and presentations are available here.
Germany and the United Kingdom announce the winning bids for funding of the NAMA Facility
Germany and the UK have announced their financial support for climate protection projects to be implemented in Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Indonesia.
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 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 (more).
Being some of the most advanced and ambitious NAMAs worldwide, these projects will now enter into an appraisal process which will be conducted by the respective delivery organisations. Upon successful conclusion of the in-depth appraisal, the delivery organisations will submit their NAMA Support Project Proposal.
In Chile, 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.
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% and simultaneously improve air quality.
In Costa Rica, 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.
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.

Technical Support Unit of NAMA Facility started work
The Technical Support Unit (TSU) of the NAMA Facility started its work at the end of June 2013.
The TSU is comprised of staff from KfW Development Bank and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH. Those two bodies are commissioned by the NAMA Facility Board to implement the NAMA Facility.
The NAMA Facility Board, comprising representatives of DECC and BMUB as founders and funders of the NAMA Facility, is the Facility’s central decision-making body. It takes all key decisions related to strategy, guidelines and the selection of NAMA Support Projects. The TSU functions as the NAMA Facility Secretariat, which supports the Facility Board in all aspects related to Facility management.
This includes evaluating the submitted NAMA Support Project Outlines based on the Facility’s eligibility and ambition criteria. These evaluations, which are subject to an external evaluation to ensure impartiality, support the Facility Board in selecting the most ambitious and well-developed NAMA Support Projects for funding.
Furthermore, the TSU functions as a focal point for partner governments, delivery organisations and other stakeholders. It is responsible for the development of processes and documents with regard to the overall project cycle of the NAMA Facility, financial reporting, the set-up of the M&E Framework, the assessment of NAMA Support Project reviews and reviewing the Facility’s performance.
