Mexican NAMAs to reduce GHG emissions from residential buildings (new and existing), small and medium enterprises, and the road freight industry have been prepared for large scale implementation and the procurement of international co-financing. Implementation of the NAMAs has begun and a coordinating Mexican NAMA Office has been established.
The programme is helping its Mexican partners to prepare NAMAs that address emissions in residential buildings (new and existing), small and medium enterprises, and the road freight industry. In each case, the work involves three concurrent areas of activity:
- development of the NAMA concepts (direct and indirect mitigation measures)
- development of financing mechanisms
- development of monitoring, reporting and verification (MRV) systems.
Supported NAMA for Sustainable Housing in Mexico
Mexico’s Sustainable Housing NAMA is the first of its kind in the world. The NAMA mitigates emissions in the residential sector by providing supplemental finance to improve electrical, fossil fuel, and water efficiency. These improvements are achieved through deployment of eco-technologies, proliferation of design improvements, and utilization of efficient building materials.
Supported NAMA for Sustainable Housing Retrofit in Mexico
After the successful implementation of the NAMA programme for sustainable new Housing (NAMA VN, see [CONAVI 2011] and [CONAVI 2013]), NAMA for Sustainable Housing Retrofit (NAMA VE) has been developed. Its objective is to mitigate GHG emissions in the sector of existing homes by providing supplemental finance to improve energy efficiency through deployment of eco-technologies, proliferation of design improvements and the use of efficient building materials.
