Burkina Faso Biomass Energy NAMA

Case Summary: 

The NAMA aims to reduce emissions associated with biomass use and respective deforestation e.g. for thermal energy use in the commercial sector by distributing more energy efficient cook stoves for traditional beer brewing and the production of Shea butter and sumbala. 1 In three phases, the NAMA will target i) productive energy use, ii) domestic energy use, iii) alternative energy options and energy markets. The objective is to enable the biomass energy sector to become an economically viable and renewable sector in the context of sustainable low carbon development.

Good practice elements of the project design include the level of cross-organisational coordination, the active participation of stakeholders, the market-oriented concept, and the combination of technical assistance and financial components.
