Mitigation Action Implementation Network (MAIN)

Supporting Ambitious Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions

CCAP is working to support the design and implementation of nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) and Low-Emissions Development Strategies (LEDS) in developing countries through regionally-based dialogues, web-based exchanges, and practitioner networks. Recent UNFCCC negotiations have made it clear that climate protection will depend on actions on the ground in both developing and developed countries. In recent years, developing countries have shown a significant commitment to reducing emissions unilaterally and being involved in the ultimate climate solution. The MAIN initiative works to identify and highlight the most successful developing country mitigation policies and uses these lessons to assist other countries in refining their policies and implementation frameworks in order to achieve ambitious mitigation actions.
