The first call for NAMA Support Projects was launched in July 2013 and ended on 2 September 2013.
During the first call, 47 NAMA Support Project Outlines were received. As regards geographical distribution, projects are spread evenly across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
With regard to thematic sectors, renewable energy and energy efficiency are the topics most frequently addressed in the NAMA Support Project Outlines, followed by waste and transport.
In a transparent and competitive selection process, all project outlines are evaluated against pre-determined selection criteria, which ensures that the most ambitious and transformational NAMAs will be selected for funding.
