UNDP MDG Carbon has released a new tool that is designed for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) developers and policy makers. The tool allows users to evaluate the sustainable development performance indicators and sustainable development results achieved over the lifetime of the NAMA.
MDG Carbon published a Guidance Note for SBs, primarily intended for Designated National Authorities, Coordinating and Managing Entities, and consultants involved with the development of SBs. The Note focuses on the current UNFCCC rules and regulations (Standards and Guidelines) with an emphasis on establishing a Quality Management System. The objective of this document is to make SBs comprehensible and easy to implement thus promoting its wider application across a broad range of relevant sectors.

This paper is backgrounder for the ongoing and further work on the question of how to finance a NAMA. It aims to identify in the context of technical assistance what has to be considered when planning and implementing a NAMA and mobilizing the financing of that individual NAMA.
The guide book offers a quick screen methodology to identify NAMA opportunities with potential for climate financing, and a deep screen methodology to analyze and determine the most appropriate development options to meet country-specific needs. And the process has been tailored to produce NAMA Concepts and Proposals that align with the requirements of the UNFCCC NAMA registry that will open this year. The guide walks policy makers through all the steps needed to successfully develop NAMAs and demonstrate preparedness to access available funding.
