LEDS, NAMAs and MRV-Systems are the pillars on which ambitious national mitigation architecture in developing countries rests. GIZ has developed three step-by-step-tools and trainings to provide guidance on those topics. The tools and trainings are intended to strengthen capacities in the respective countries towards a climate friendly development. The tools have been reviewed by various experts and think tanks and were commented on by the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). They base on the experiences from capacity building activities of several practitioners, take the available knowledge from the international debate into consideration, and reflect the decisions in the UNFCCC negotiations. They are not supposed to reflect the political positions of individual governments.
The NAMA-Tool and NAMA-Training are already available in four different languages (English, French, Spanish and Russian) and have been applied in capacity-building activities in over 15 partner countries. Since November 2013 the LEDS-Tool and the MRV-Tool also havebeen made available online at the Mitigation Partnership website. The first pilot applications will be carried out in December 2013 in Peru and Tunisia.
