National Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) & Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS)

Perspectives - Services designed for you

Perspectives GmbH is a competence-center and a one-stop shop for national and international climate policy instruments with extensive practical experience in National Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs). Perspectives offers high quality services and comprehensive tailor-made solutions. Our international team is interdisciplinary and highly experienced.


A NAMA specifies voluntary activities of GHG emission mitigation in developing countries that are not subject to mitigation commitments and can be supported by industrialized country financing. In the Copenhagen Accord industrialized countries have committed to mobilize US$ 30 million until the end of 2012 (“Fast-track finance”) and up to US$ 100 billion a year by 2020 to address the needs of developing countries for mitigation and adaptation.


Low Emission Development Strategies (LEDS) enable developing countries to grow their economies in a more sustainable way (also referred to as “green growth” strategies). NAMAs can be designed as part of a comprehensive LEDS or applied as a stand-alone action at the sectoral or sub-sectoral level.

Our services:

  • Enable countries to identify and assess NAMA opportunities
  • Provide capacity building to ministries, institutions and stakeholders
  • Develop NAMA concepts including MRV systems and
  • Matchmaking between NAMA owners and providers of funding.


Perspectives helped to develop the world's first NAMA involving building energy efficiency in Mexico.



Perspectives’ support can help make NAMAs real, funded and operational. We have been pioneering the work on NAMAs by providing technical support in developing the world’s first NAMA concept and MRV system (NAMA on building energy efficiency in Mexico). We have been workingon NAMA assignments in more than 15 countries across the globe (Latin America, Asia and Africa) and in various sectors (i.e. building energy efficiency, municipal waste, waste-water, renewable energy, demand-side energy efficiency, tourism, power sector). With our excellent network of local technical experts we are close to our clients when identifying opportunities and developing actions that can make a difference.


Beside our high-end technical support we are eager to spread our knowledge and expertise by developing publications, guidebooks and “how-to” manuals for NAMA development (e.g. for UNDP, UNFCCC, GIZ). Perspectives also provides on-the-ground training and capacity building workshops. With our extensive involvement in NAMA work in the recent years, we are among the world’s leading experts on NAMAs.


Our mission is to enable your mitigation action to succeed.
