The Mitigation Action Facility (MAF), an agile, grant-based multi-donor fund driving decarbonization, launched its Call for Projects 2023 during the third day of the Global NDC Conference 2023. The session combined high-level interventions and a fireside chat with representatives from Mitigation Action Facility donors and a partner country.
Key messages included the need for combining technical and financial assistance as means to implement complex and ambitious climate projects, the relevance of enabling transformational vehicles (such as the MAF) to accelerate NDC implementation in key mitigation sectors, as well as the call for financial instruments that would unlock investments in technologies—leading to a reduction of greenhouse gases.
The Mitigation Action Facility (formerly NAMA Facility) has a funding volume of up to EUR 100 million and seeks to support initiatives that accelerate the reduction of global emissions in the energy, transport, and industry sectors. Ambitious enhanced Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) are an assessment criterion. The Call for Projects 2023 is open for submission of Project Concepts until 31 July 2023.
All sectoral transformations have to happen in parallel and in an integrated way — said Anja Hajduk, State Secretary at the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action
On 2 June 2023, the Mitigation Action Facility (formerly NAMA Facility) launched the new Call for Projects 2023 at the Global NDC Conference in Berlin, Germany with a clear focus on the priority sectors energy, industry, and transport. The Call for Projects 2023 features a newly added Project Concept Phase aimed at simplifying the application process and opening the competition to a wider range of potential applicants and partners and is open for two months from 2 June until 31 July 2023.
At the occasion of the Global NDC Conference in Berlin, Germany, the Mitigation Action Facility launched its new Call for Projects 2023 on 1 June. The Mitigation Action Facility is a multi-donor climate finance programme. It provides technical support and climate finance for ambitious mitigation projects with an aim of decarbonising key sectors of the economy and society. Germany’s Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action is one of the key donors of the Mitigation Action Facility, providing funds through the International Climate Initiative (IKI).
Federal Minister Habeck opens second day of the Global NDC Conference in Berlin – ambitious climate action in emerging and developing countries on the agenda. Germany and its partners in the Mitigation Action Facility will provide more than €100bn for a competition for funding for decarbonisation projects in developing and emerging countries.
Building on the last ten years of succes of the Mitigation Action Facility, we hope that it will enable countries here present today to take forward their climate action — said Zoe Norgate, Deputy Director, International Net Zero – Green Finance and Capability, UK Department for Energy Security and Net Zero
