Webinar on the World Bank's Mitigation Action Assessment Protocol (MAAP) tool

The World Bank has developed the Mitigation Action Assessment Protocol (MAAP), a key tool for achieving transparency in how climate actions are designed. It can be a useful tool to assess the completeness of NAMA or mitigation action designs, and identify strengths and weaknesses in the NAMA documentation. In addition to allow the completeness of mitigation actions, the tool is already applied on 180 mitigation actions by several countries, cities and institutions to compare mitigation actions, facilitating prioritization between different mitigation options, and to identify areas of improvement in the documentation before approaching potential financiers.

Due to the increased interest in the MAAP, and the tool's relevance for NAMA development, the UNEP DTU Partnership has organized webinars introducing this tool. The video recording of the webinar can be viewed here:


We at the NAMAcademy deem this as a good opportunity for NAMA practitioners to expand their competencies with a practical tool that can improve the quality of the mitigation action design. The tool can be found here: https://maap.worldbank.org
