"A designated national authority (DNA) is the body granted responsibility by a Party to authorise and approve participation in CDM projects. Establishment of a DNA is one of the requirements for participation by a Party in the CDM. The main task of the DNA is to assess potential CDM projects to determine whether they will assist the host country in achieving its sustainable development goals and to provide a letter of approval to project participants in CDM projects. This letter of approval must confirm that the project activity contributes to sustainable development in the country. It is then submitted to CDM Executive Board to support the registration of the project." - http://cdm.unfccc.int/DNA/index.html
