The NAMA Facility Launches its 6th Call for the Submission of NAMA Support Project Outlines
The United Kingdom and Germany have announced their intention to commit up to EUR 80 million for the NAMA Facility to launch its 6th Call for the submission of NAMA Support Project (NSP) Outlines.
On 10 December, the NAMA Facility’s Donors announced this significant step toward climate action at the NAMA Facility’s COP24 side event in Katowice, Poland. This renewed push highlights the Donors’ steadfast commitment to mitigating greenhouse gas emissions and keeping global temperature rises to well below two degrees Celsius. At the side event, the NAMA Facility’s Donors recognized the outstanding work of the NAMA Facility and indicated their support for the NAMA Facility through 2020 and beyond. A detailed write-up from the event can be found here.
Outline submissions to the 6th Call are open from 10 December 2018 until 15 March 2019 at 3pm CET. Through this competitive Call, the NAMA Facility continues to support developing countries and emerging economies in implementing the most ambitious NAMAs with high potential for transformational change towards a low-carbon future.
Once the Call is closed on 15 March, submitted Outlines will undergo a thorough evaluation process. The NAMA Facility’s Board will then select those Outlines to receive support in the Detailed Preparation Phase. During this phase, Applicants are provided with experts and financial support to further elaborate Outlines into fully fledged NSP Proposals. A second evaluation process is then undertaken to assess Proposals, and those NSPs approved by the NAMA Facility Board will enter the Implementation Phase.
All relevant application materials are now available on the NAMA Facility’s website.
Founded in 2012, NAMA Facility Donors – the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU); the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS); the European Union and the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate (EFKM) – have until now made available up to EUR 420 million for NAMA Facility climate action.
