Presentation from the second MAIN-Asia dialogue, held in Vietnam.
As developing countries develop Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) proposals for financing during the fast-start phase, questions arise about the relationship to the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and on how NAMAs can support participation by the private sector. In an effort to answer these questions, this paper explains key differences between these divergent approaches to... continue reading »
This report begins with an overview of China, including population and economic statistics and a profile of its historical energy consumption and GHG emission trends. The chapter concludes with a summary of the macro assumptions, analytical methodologies and computer modeling tools used in the analysis. Chapters III through VII present the results of the GHG... continue reading »
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. Mitigation Action Implementation Network Objectives This initiative is designed to: Improve participant country’s capacity to design, plan and implement NAMAs that are consistent with any LEDS or national sustainable development plans. MAIN allows participants to learn from peers on real-world strategies to develop, finance and implement highly effective and cost-competitive NAMAs. Harvest best practices in NAMA development and implementation and provide participants with examples of successful bottom-up strategies informed by on-the-ground, in-country experiences. These examples will offer an effective way to achieve significant emission reductions. Promote collaborative financing for such actions by providing strategies to make NAMAs attractive to possible funders from donor countries, including meeting expectations for monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV). MAIN dialogues will also help finance officials better understand the challenges faced in NAMA development and how funding can best support effective developing country policy outcomes. Help define a longer-term international program of action that produces global GHG reductions sufficient to limit adverse impacts from climate change. Provide participants with a network of personal contacts in other developing countries and with possible funders from developed countries who could support ambitious NAMAs. How MAIN Works MAIN consists of several components: Regional dialogues or “policy academies” wherein policy implementers from key ministries in each country, climate negotiators, finance and MRV experts, and industry representatives advance efforts to design, implement, and leverage financing for NAMAs. These meetings will be composed of presentations on NAMA successes, roundtable discussions, brainstorming sessions, and networking opportunities. Harvesting of best practices is shared with participating countries, in which CCAP will identifies best practices in NAMA design and implementation, LCDS, MRV, and financing. Global dialogues and policy lunches that leverage the results of the fast-start finance period to shape climate policy at the international level. Virtual “knowledge sharing” sessions to enrich the peer-to-peer learning process initiated by the regional dialogues using web-based technology.
