Forest NAMA - A tool to mitigate climate change (Side event at United Nations Forum on Forests)
Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMA) are set of actions that reduce emissions relative to business-as-usual emissions in 2020 in developing countries. These are prepared under the umbrella of a national government initiative. NAMAs are supported and enabled by technology, financing and capacity building. These range from project based mitigation actions to sectorial programmes or policies.
