ABSTRACT
Conceptually, nationally appropriate mitigation actions (NAMAs) provided a framework for mitigation in developing countries. Since COP 13 in Bali, discussions on the structural elements of NAMAs have taken a central place. One of these elements is an international registry. Recognizing the centrality of support for actions, the registry was envisioned to carry out two functions: act as a tool for registering actions; and serve as an avenue for matchmaking of actions with support. Hopes were high that the matchmaking provision will make access to support easy for developing countries and might also assist funding channels of the financial mechanism, especially the Green Climate Fund.Recent developments, however, seem to signal a dilution of this function. This commentary traces developments relating to NAMA support and the aforesaid registry, building on developments in the negotiations and anecdotal evidence on the evolution of NAMA support from ongoing activities. It highlights a harmonization deficit in the way international support mechanisms for NAMAs are developing.
