Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions: Definitions, Issues and Options

According to the Bali Action Plan (BAP), the current negotiations on the future climate regime include consideration of “nationally appropriate mitigation actions by developing country Parties in the context of sustainable development, supported and enabled by technology, financing and capacity-building, in a measurable, reportable and verifiable manner.“ However, despite two years of discussions and negotiations, a clear consensus on the exact nature of NAMAs and mechanisms for support has yet to emerge. This paper therefore aims to present an overview of the current state of debate and possible ways forward.
