The SQ team supports a new approach to NAMA development. We strongly focus on national circumstances, existing in-country knowledge and experience and strong ownership. Our approach is based on the following principles:
- A solid understanding of the political and social framework within the country is essential to design policies and actions that will be effective. Only the detailed local knowledge of government representatives and local stakeholders can ensure a NAMA design that will lead to successful implementation.
- To ensure successful implementation, acceptance and ownership of the designed NAMA by all relevant stakeholders is key.
- Many developing country governments are well able to take the lead in developing successful NAMAs.
- Governments need very specific technical support that needs to be determined depending on available national resources.
The international experts from SQ Consult with their large variety of expertise offer tailored support based on the needs of countries developing NAMAs, not off-the-shelf solutions. With our approach we aim to help create successful and sustainable activities that benefit the development of the implementing country as well as the climate.
