Abstract:
The concept of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) concept is in its early stages and has not shown its full potential. It is still being tested in practice and at the same time finding its way as an element of the international climate regime. In this paper we have used the theme of stakeholder engagement to reflect on current issues in NAMA development that warrant further discussion in their own right: the need for broader uptake of the concept, the availability of financial support, the search for transformational impact, and the political nature of low-carbon development.

NAMAs require intensive stakeholder engagement to ensure ownership and buy-in. The process of developing a NAMA is in essence not very different from that required to design and implement traditional development assistance programmes, and in general, stakeholder engagement approaches that have worked well in the broader environment and development fields are likely to work well for NAMAs too. However, NAMAs do have some characteristic features that have implications for stakeholder engagement, and we explore some of these in this paper.
