UNEP - Regional Office for Asia Pacific - Advancing Energy Efficiency in the Building Sector

UNEP assists Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Viet Nam to develop Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Actions (NAMAs) for the building sector in partnership with the Global Building Performance Network, the Building and Construction Authority, the Centre for Sustainable Building, the Energy Research Institute, Tsinghua University and UNEP Risoe. The project equips countries with technical capacity to develop and refine Measurement, Reporting and Verification (MRV) tools for application in the sector. A regional networking component allows for the replication of NAMA development in more countries in the region. The project will bring to the fore the potential for energy efficiency in the building sector and stimulate investment and growth in technology industries, both of which can lead to employment gains in this sector.  The project is financially supported by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, Germany
