  5. 5. Outlook at negotiations: Issues hanging in the air •Difficult but not impossible Guidance on support (finance, technology and capacity) A process to support preparation and implementation of NAMAs •Highly unlikely Technical guidelines (e.g. for MRV, baselines, etc.) Accounting rules

  12. 12. What’s next? •Mitigation as a development issue •National governments on the driving seat: What? Where? How? Why? •Time to formulate/implement •Key design aspects: a)Mitigation and other benefits b)Finance c)MRV
  13. 13. What’s next? Emerging understandings (outside UNFCCC) •Interest in moving away from a project by project approach •Ideally, countries to establish a “framework” for action (targets, LEDS, etc) for the efficiency, sustainability and coordination of individual projects: Institutional arrangements Criteria for action Finance and support MRV •“Project-type” NAMAs may still be proposed
