  • 2. Charting a course away from dangerous climate change: A window of opportunity of 100 months• To keep within 2C threshold CO2eqv concentration should stabilize at 450 ppm• A sustainable emissions pathway will require the world to cut of 50 percent by 2050 World population predicted to reach nearly 9 billion by 2050 We have witnessed three economic transformations in the past century. First came the industrial revolution, then the technologyEntering into new era of green global revolution, then our modern era of globalization.economic growth, through significant We stand at the threshold of another greatmitigation of GHG emissions and generating change: the age of green economics.”funding for mitigation and adaptation UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moonactions and thus creating new investmentopportunities
  • 3. UNFCCC on NAMAs• Agreed in Bali in 2007 (COP13), submissions after Cancun 2010 (COP16) and elaborated at subsequent sessions: – Voluntary mitigation actions by developing countries – domestically implemented or internationally supported in the context of sustainable development – Any government-supported (prioritized under LEDS) policy, program, project that results in measurable GHG reductions can be a NAMA• Developments on: – MRV: domestic and international, biennial update reports, ICA – NAMA Registry: will record information and facilitate the matching of action and support (operational after Doha) – Financing: Green Climate Fund to support development and implementation (fast start finance and after it?)
  • 4. Formats for NAMAThe Durban Agreements (2011) provide general framework of information that shouldbe provided for NAMAs seeking international support via the NAMA registry: (a) Description of the mitigation action and the national implementing entity, including contact info; (b) Expected timeframe for the implementation of the mitigation action; (c) Estimated full cost of the preparation; (d) Estimated full cost and/or incremental cost of implementation of the mitigation action; (e) Amount and type of support (financial, technological and capacity building) required to prepare and/or implement the mitigation action; (f) Estimated emission reductions; (g) Other indicators of implementation; (h) Other relevant information, including the co-benefits for local sustainable development, if information thereon exists.

  • 5. Current developments at Bangkok informal meetingProposed elements for Doha decision (not agreed): • To reiterate invitation to developing countries to submit NAMAs • Continue the process of understanding the diversity of NAMAs • To submit additional information on underlying assumptions, methodologies, sectors, gases, GWP, support needed • Compile information on NAMAs in a structured manner • Request the relevant body to develop MRV guidance for support • Work to clarify methodological issues, taking into account national diversity • Organize regional workshops to build capacity • Take stock of existing capacity building activities to support NAMAs development and implementation • Prepare a handbook to support preparation of NAMAs
  • 6. UNFCCC workshop on NAMAs, BangkokIn session workshop on NAMAs (2 September 2012)Panel 1. Underlying assumptions and methodologies, sectors and gases , andestimated mitigation: Developing countries - instruments for transparency have been developed already (i.e., ICA and biennial update reports) so no need for additional processes on reporting and transparency; NAMAs are country-driven, diverse and must respect national circumstances; there is no need for their standardization Developed countries - value of increased transparency on NAMAs by expressing the underlying assumptions, such as GDP growth and baseline emissionsPanel 2. Support for NAMAs: EU - need for countries to contribute their own finance; NAMAs should fit within country’s broader LEDS. Operationalization of support through the UNFCCC Registry early next year Developing countries - need for all kind of capacity needs in regards to NAMA development, implementation, and MRVInformal summary: http://unfccc.int/files/adaptation/application/pdf/wsnamasummary4sep12.pdf

  • 11. How to organize NAMA development• The linkages to national communications and GHG inventories, as well as the data needed for designing a NAMA• Integration of NAMAs into broader low-carbon (SD) development,• Setting up a interministerial coordination and assure stakeholders involvement for identifying and prioritizing (criteria/political) NAMAs and• Identification of sources of finance, technology and c.b. needs• The MRV systems• Roles and responsibilities of different ministries and institutions in developing, submitting, implementing, and MRVing (double counting)
