NAMA training in the Maldives

NewClimate Institute supported a training on Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) in the Maldives organised by GIZ. The training gave the participants an understanding of the concept of NAMAs in the international and the domestic context. It highlighted specific aspects to be considered for the development of NAMAs, for example, financing and MRV. During the three-day workshop, the participants developed various NAMA ideas in the energy, waste, transport and fishery sectors, with the support of Hanna Fekete from NewClimate Institute and GIZ trainers. Maldives is a Small Island Developing State, and with an average elevation of only 1.5 meters, it is extremely vulnerable to climate change and resulting sea level rise.
