Welcome to the UNEP Risoe
NAMA Pipeline Analysis and Database

The NAMA Pipeline Analysis and Database contains all submissions to the UNFCCC from developing countries and countries in transition for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions. It also contains submissions from developed countries on finance for NAMAs.

The columns and the variables used to describe each NAMA will change over time as more NAMA are submitted, like it happened for the CDMPipeline. We welcome and would be thankful for all inputs provided by stakeholders and market participants to improve the level of information.

The UNFCCC NAMA Registry can now be access by the public at the webpage:

The date of submission has now been reintroduced for the newest NAMAs.

NAMA0003 "Interurban Electric Rail NAMA" from Ethiopia has disappeared from the NAMA registry. We assume that it has been withdrawn by the country focalpoint and have therefore given it the status "Withdrawn" in the new column we have inserted in our NAMPipeline.

Two new NAMAs were submitted in March:

"Adaptive Sustainable Forest Management in Borjomi-Bakuriani Forest District" in Georgia asking for External support for implementation, and

"Energy Efficient Lighting in Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and Outdoor Sectors of Pakistan" asking for External support for preparation.

This information is used as input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 44 NAMAs.

One new support for NAMAs was also submitted in March:

"Austrian NAMA Initiative" giving up to 500,000 Euro in support per NAMA.

The NAMA Pipeline is a less formal overview of NAMAs submitted to the Registry. Many users will find similarities with the trendsetting sister site, the CDMPipeline. Here projects have been recorded, categorised, and analysed in accord with the UNFCCC CDM website. It is the hope that the NAMA Pipeline similarly will supplement the official registries and provide users with similar options for creating their own statistics. It will also provide the first graphic and tabular presentations of the depth and reach of submitted NAMAs, a section that is going to develop as data accumulates.

We have split the former pipeline into two: the former upper part containing the submissions to the Copenhagen Accord are now in the sheet "Submissions" and the lower part containing the real NAMAs submitted are now in the sheet "NAMAs".

Please cite as "UNEP Risoe NAMA Pipeline Analysis and Database, April 1st 2014".

Please do not put the spreadsheets on other web-sites. Instead please provide a link to this site to ensure continuous updating.
