NAMA. It is the implementation mechanism of the National Low Carbon Livestock Strategy and will be carried out in three stages, hoping to conclude in 2034. The goal for 2022 is to convert 1,773 cattle farms into more profitable units adapted to climate change, with an equivalent in carbon reduction, CO2, of 39 thousand metric tons.
The strategy is led by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG), with the support of the National Institute on Agricultural Technology Transfer (INTA), the Chamber of Milk Producers and the Livestock Corporation (CORFOGA), the academy, among other institutions of the Agricultural and Public Sector.
Livestock farms that commit to these practices receive staff training, non-reimbursable funds, and access to financing tailored to their particular needs.
In this process, the country has received support from various bilateral donors and technical counterparts including the Government of the United States, United Kingdom, and New Zealand, and resources from the Global Adaptation Fund, managed by FUNDECOOPERACION. As a complement, the MAG supports technical and administrative personnel.
