Welcome to the UNEP DTU
NAMA Pipeline Analysis and Database

The NAMA Pipeline Analysis and Database contains all submissions to the UNFCCC from developing countries and countries in transition for Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions. It also contains submissions from developed countries on finance for NAMAs.

The UNFCCC NAMA Registry can be accessed by the public at the webpage:

NAMA news:

The UNFCCC NAMA Registry can be accessed by the public at the webpage:

1 NAMA was submitted in April from Sierra Leone: "Support to Sierra Leone Preparation of Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action.

The total number of NAMAs is now 128 (2 NAMAs were withdrawn, and 2 was resubmitted).

The total support offered is 176 MUS$ only 2.2% of the total support requested of 8032 MUS$, and the total cost for the NAMAs is 39126 MUS$.

Our new publication on ‘Transformational change taxonomy’, a methodological framework for the assessment of transformational change in NAMAs' etc. has just been released and can be downloaded here:

INDC/NDC & PledgePipeline news:

Our Pledgepipeline includes the Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs/NDCs) that are submitted to the UNFCCC.

Available at:

The total number of INDC submissions has now increased to 162 (189 countries) after Panama submitted its INDC/NDC. Only 8 UN countries have not submitted yet: Kosovo, Libya, Nicaragua, North Korea, Palestine, Syria, Timor-Leste and Uzbekistan.

Four countries have submitted their NDCs.

The requested support in Billion US$ until 2030 for Mitigation is (total of 421 Billion US$ for the 54 submissions with data) and for Adaptation (total of 615 Billion US$ for the 61 submissions with data).

If we scale these requested support values up to the total population in the non-Annex-I countries, we arrive at an annual need for international support of 148 Billion US$ for Mitigation and 130 Billion US$ for Adaptation.

In column BZ-CC in the "GHG Emission by country" sheet we have added the information on the population in all the countries for 2010 and 2030 in order to calculate the GHG emissions per capita in the countries in these years. If we take the UNEP GAP report 2915 statement that the total mission should be below 42 GtCO2e in 2030 and the UN projection of 8.4 Billion people in 2030, we find that the average emission in 2030 should be below 4.98 ton CO2e. 42 INDCs (marked with red color) of 120 with absolute targets have larger emissions in 2030 than this value.

The UNEP Emission Gap Report 2015 was published 4. April, see

Our GACMO model, which can be used to calculate the BAU projection and the mitigation part of the INDC can be downloaded from both the and the sites.

Non-state actors:

The Climate Initiatives Platform (CIP) has now been transferred from Ecofys to the UNEP DTU Partnership. The web-site is accessible as before at

CIP now contains 242 International Cooperative Initiatives after the latest update at Ecofys. We will continue the updates and improvements of the database.
