As announced during the climate negotiations 2012 in Doha, Qatar, the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) of the United Kingdom (UK) jointly established the NAMA Facility and contributed jointly 120 million euro of funding to support developing countries and emerging economies that show leadership on tackling climate change and that want to implement ambitious climate protection measures (NAMAs).
In previous years, developing countries have prepared a multitude of ambitious climate protection measures. However, accessing finance for implementation through existing commercial and public channels has proven difficult, particularly for the most innovative parts of NAMAs. The NAMA Facility offers tailormade climate finance by funding the implementation of ambitious country-led NAMAs, thus delivering concrete greenhouse gas reductions on the ground. The presentation will provide a general introduction to the NAMA Facility, its means of support, its selection criteria as well as up-to date information on the second call for projects. In addition, lessons learned during the first call for projects and the early implementation stage of the selected NAMA Support Projects will be shared with the audience. For further information on the Facility, the 2nd call and the so far selected projects: www.nama-facility.org

NAMAs – Introduction of a new instrument for climate protection and its relevance for the waste sector
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2014)
Nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) are an emerging international climate mitigation instrument. It is supposed to be used by developing countries to make progress in reducing their domestic greenhouse gas emissions, supported and enabled by technology, financing and capacity building in a measurable, reportable and verifiable (MRV) manner. So far the definition from the Bali Action Plan – but what exactly is a NAMA?
Monitoring, Reporting & Verification (MRV) – How environmental sciences can
contribute to improving waste management practices in terms of climate protection and sustainability
© European Compost Network ECN e.V. (6/2014)
Despite its seemingly technical nature, MRV is yet one of the most important and contentious issues in any international arrangement on climate protection. The term encompasses all measures to collect performance data and to compile this information in reports and inventories, and to subject these to some form of review.
The Eco-Patent Commons and Environmental Technology Transfer: Implications for Efforts to Tackle Climate Change
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (4/2010)
This article explores the potential role and pitfalls of corporate initiatives related to access to intellectual property in the transfer of environmentally friendly technology especially to developing countries. An initial investigation of how patents can affect environmentally beneficial technology transfer is forwarded, contrasting the approaches of the public and private sector in the encouragement of environmentally beneficial technology transfer. A wide variety of potential influences are analyzed, with specific focus being placed on the eco-patent commons project, the international encouragement of clean technologies, patent pools, open source systems, and enabled invention disclosures. This is analyzed in the context of the quest to encourage climate-friendly technologies.

Betreiber von Hochwasserschutzanlagen aus dem Nordseeraum und Wissenschaftler verschiedener Disziplinen haben innovative Lösungen für eine anpassungsfähige und breit aufgestellte Anlagen und Vermögensverwaltung entwickelt. Um den zukünftigen, gemeinsamen Herausforderungen im Hochwasserschutz gewappnet zu sein, wurden Prinzipien erarbeitet und länderübergreifend an fünf Fallstudien im Nordseeraum angewendet.
Reporting of food waste in the EU – Results of current estimates in Germany

In February 2019, the German Federal Cabinet adopted the 'National Strategy for Reducing Food Waste', setting a framework for the future direction of this initiative. Among other things, it stipulated that an inter-ministerial "Indicator 12.3 Working Group" should prepare the data bases and methods for nationwide balancing of food waste generation (baseline). Based on existing 2015 data, this status quo analysis will be used as a starting point to agree on milestones for the respective sectors.
