    There is no internationally defined or agreed Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action(NAMA) cycle, as was the case, for example, with the Clean Development Mechanisms (CDM) project cycle. However, there are some common steps that NAMA identification, formulation, and implementation will all go through.
    This paper provides a comprehensive overview of these steps in the form of a NAMA cycle, from the identification of NAMA ideas to the implementation of a NAMA and of the Measuring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) system related to the NAMA. It should benoted that the term ‘NAMA’ is used for both nationally determined voluntary mitigation action to address GHG emissions and specific mitigation actions identified at the sectoral,sub-sectoral or local levels. In the rest of this paper, the term NAMA will refer to specific mitigation action.
