Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) are country driven initiatives that developing nations are implementing to achieve sustainable development while contributing towards global efforts in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

NAMA Fair 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 Fair 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.
