Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) Sustainable Development Evaluation Tool
UNDP 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. The tool is linked to the proposed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which may be subject to change, and shall allow policy makers to track the effects of the NAMA on environmental conservation, economic growth, poverty reduction and public welfare.
NAMA sustainable development benefits are quantified using Nationally Appropriate Improvements (NAIs) and are calculated for each indicator to evaluate the co-benefits of each intervention for a specific monitoring period.
MDG Carbon is currently testing the tool in several NAMAs. First lessons learned will be shared over the next few months.
We hope that you find the tool useful and would appreciate continuous feedback on the applicability of the Tool.
