NAMA for the Renewable Energy Sector of Lao PDR

The Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) represents an opportunity for sustainable and low carbon development for Lao PDR. The government can build on the existing policy framework, which incorporates policies, plans and actions aimed at mitigating GHG emissions while achieving sustainable development, so as to define a comprehensive and coherent NAMA development framework for Lao PDR. The overall target of this NAMA is to support Lao PDR in achieving the goal defined in the Rural Electrification Master Plan, namely to provide access to electricity to more than 90 per cent of households in Lao PDR by 2020. The NAMA will reduce GHG emissions through the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable forms of energy. It will also contribute sustainable development (SD) benefits, including as improvement of the situation of groups with specific vulnerabilities, women and the poor.
