The NAMA Registry is a publicly available online platform operated by the UNFCCC Secretariat. Its purpose is to increase opportunities for implementation of and recognition for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in developing countries.
The registry allows developing countries to record information for all NAMAs seeking support for development or implementation, whether they are smaller individual projects or larger national initiatives by sector. Parties are also encouraged to enter information for NAMAs that they have implemented without external support in order to be recognized for their mitigation efforts.
Another essential purpose of the registry is to facilitate Financial, Capacity-Building, and Technology support for NAMAs by providing Annex I Parties and Organisations a mechanism to publicly announce their available resources.
Anyone can Browse and Search the NAMA Registry.

The Conference of Parties (COP), at its sixteenth session, decided to set up a registry to record nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) seeking international support, to facilitate the matching of finance, technology and capacity-building support with these actions, and to recognize other NAMAs.
The NAMA registry has been developed in accordance with decisions 1/CP.16, paragraph 53, and 2/CP.17, paragraph 45. Accordingly participation is voluntary and only information that has been specifically requested for recording in the NAMA registry is found in this platform.
The NAMA registry has not been designed to perform functions of measurement, reporting and verification of mitigation actions and support. The Conference of Parties has agreed on other mechanisms for that purpose pursuant to decisions 1/CP.16 and 2/CP.17.
