NAMA Facility announces 2nd Round of Ambition Initiative


Deadline: 30-Apr-22

NAMA Facility is pleased to announce an open call for the 2nd round of Ambition Initiative to provide financial support to developing countries and emerging economies that show leadership on tackling climate change and want to implement transformational country-led NAMAs within the global mitigation architecture in the short- and mid-term.

The NAMA Facility Ambition Initiative and Ambition Initiative – Round Two feature several new characteristics that distinguish them from previous Calls, targeting an even higher level of ambition in mitigation projects to achieve transformation towards carbon-neutrality and to allow countries to build back greener as they recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Key Features
The NAMA Facility Ambition Initiative and Ambition Initiative – Round Two feature several new characteristics that distinguish them from previous Calls, targeting an even higher level of ambition in mitigation projects to achieve transformation towards carbon-neutrality and to allow countries to build back greener as they recover from the Covid-19 pandemic. The new characteristics of the two rounds of Ambition Initiative include the following:

Focus on enhanced and ambitious first updated or second NDCs as an eligibility criterium
Focus on NSPs targeting sectors explicitly included in the first updated or second NDCs
Emphasis on the role of global cooperation in climate change mitigation, in particular on cooperation with the NDC Partnership (NDCP)
The requirement to ensure contribution to existing national efforts for green recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic
Strengthened emphasis on innovation in the context of raised NDC ambition and consideration of applications for NSPs that require a small sized pilot for novel technologies before moving into a larger scale project. This focus on novel technologies is optional for NSPs
Increased upper funding volume of EUR 25 million per NSP
Disbursement of additional budget for highly successful NSPs
Possibility for commercial organisations to serve as Applicants/Applicant Support Partners (ASPs) and NAMA Support Organisations (NSOs)
Funding Information
Funding volume in the range of EUR 5-25 million excluding DPP funding
Envisaged implementation duration of 3 – 5 ½ years
Envisaged DPP duration of either 10 or 15 months
Eligibility Criteria
The following criteria apply:

Timely submission
Completeness of documents (including endorsement letters* of ministries)

Qualification of the NAMA Facility funding as ODA finance

Additionality of the NSP
*Also e-mails from national ministries confirming the support to the NSP are accepted during the Outline submission. In this case, the actual endorsement letter should be presented at the latest during the in-depth assessment phase.
