This manual aims to support developing countries in the Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) development and implementation process by providing guidance and good practices on the key aspects of NAMAs, including the policy framework; potential types of actions; financing; institutional arrangements and the roles of different actors; and Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) procedures. The NAMA concept is an emerging one, and since by its very nature it is a “nationally appropriate” tool, its overall definition may remain incomplete. This being the case, the objective of this guide, is to take stock of what has been agreed upon with regards to NAMAs, as well as to provide a few insights on what will be considered as falling within the domain of “good practices.”
