Governance of the NAMA Facility

The decision-making body of the NAMA Facility is the NAMA Facility Board, currently comprising representatives of the Donors of the NAMA Facility (currently BMWK, BEIS, KEFM, the European Commission and CIFF). Board Members take all decisions on strategy and project selection.

A Technical Support Unit (TSU) functions as the secretariat of the NAMA Facility and supports the Board in its management. The KfW Development Bank and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH are commissioned to implement the Facility; as of the 4th Call and for all NAMA Support Projects selected from there onwards, GIZ will take over all functions that have previously been split between GIZ and KfW. GIZ will act as the NAMA Facility Grant Agent managing funds and all procurement and contractual procedures on behalf of the NAMA Facility. This includes staffing the Technical Support Unit (TSU) as a secretariat of the NAMA Facility and channelling NAMA Facility funds individual NAMA Support Projects. As any eligible organisation, GIZ and KfW may also function as NAMA Support Organisations with regard to individual NAMA Support Projects (NSP).

NAMA Facility Information Policy

The NAMA Facility aims to provide fair and equal access and treatment to all applicants and stakeholders.

In line with our objective to be open and transparent, we publish NAMA Facility documents on the NAMA Facility’s website ( e.g. the NAMA Facility Mid-Term Evaluation Report and Management Response, Executive Summaries of the NAMA Facility’s Annual Reports and the Monitoring and Evaluation Framework.

The NAMA Facility strives to become a learning hub. To pursue this objective the NAMA Facility offers feedback calls to all applicants to our Calls for outlines. We understand this feedback as a two-way process, fostering learning for stakeholders as well as for the NAMA Facility itself. Furthermore, the NAMA Facility makes available lessons learnt and analysis on various topics in the format of webinars, factsheets and workshops.
