NAMA_Day_Logo_3_Pillars.jpgDeveloping countries are successfully using Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) as an instrument to contribute towards national sustainable development and also towards closing the pre-2020 ambition gap. NAMA Day aims to showcase NAMAs that are contributing towards moving developing countries along a low-emissions development trajectory and to inspire further transformational action on the ground.

The Day will provide a platform to learn from developing countries that are taking the lead in design and implementation of NAMAs. It will also provide excellent opportunity to hear from and meet one-on-one with a wide range of public and private international organizations that are actively engaged in helping developing countries realize their low-emissions development aspirations.

NAMA Day is hosted by the UNFCCC in partnership with BMUB, DECC, GIZ, UNEP DTU, UNDP, and The Ministry of Environment of Peru.
