Welcome to the UNEP DTU
NAMA Pipeline Analysis and Database

The UNEP Risoe has changed name to UNEP DTU Partnership. This is because we have left the peninsular Risoe and moved into the UN-City in Copenhagen, and because we are still part of the Danish Technical University DTU.

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 be accessed by the public at the webpage:

NAMA news:

19 new NAMAs were submitted in December: 

One NAMA was submitted by Ethiopia:

"Ethiopia Railway's Addis Ababa Light Rail Transit (LRT) Transit Oriented Development (TOD) NAMA".

Two NAMAs were submitted by Costa Rica:

"Low Carbon Coffee - Costa Rica", and "Costa Rica Livestock NAMA".

Six NAMAs were submitted by Uganda:

"Reduction, Recycling and Reuse of Solid Waste in Kampala City"; "The Promotion of the Use of Efficient Institutional Stoves in Institutions"; "Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) for Kampala"; "Developing appropriate strategies and techniques to reduce methane emissions from livestock production in Uganda"; "Integrated Wastewater Treatment for Agro-process Water in Uganda"; "Periodic Vehicle Inspection for Emissions and Roadworthiness".

Ten new NAMAs were submitted by Mexico:

"Efficient Cookstoves"; "Solar Water Heaters"; "Cogeneration in Mexico"; "Car Fleet Renewal in Mexico"; "Disposal and Use of Wastes and Solid and Biomass Residues"; "Fuel Switch in the industry"; "Fuel Switch for the Power Generation; "Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency in the Private Sector"; "NAMA for Sustainable Housing Retrofit"; "Low Emission Schools".

This information is used as input to our NAMAPipeline, which now contains 86 NAMAs (including 1 NAMA that was withdrawn) and 14 support programmes.

We had changed the table in the "Analysis" sheet showing number of submitted NAMAs per country. It now contains a column showing the total support requested (financial+technical+capacity building) and a column showing the total cost (total requested support+other local+other international support). The total support offered is now 73 MUS$, the total support requested is 6920 MUS$, and the total cost for the NAMAs is 14080 MUS$.
