Building Support for Locally Relevant Climate Tech
Technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help people to adapt to climate change will be a key part of how developing countries respond to the climate challenge. But the relatively limited capabilities of these countries mean using such technologies remains a major challenge.
The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is currently establishing a Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTC&N) to help poorer countries with the development and deployment of climate technologies. The CTC&N aims to create a network of organisations within and across countries to provide advice to developing-country governments and enterprises on appropriate technologies. This will include advice on how they can develop and transfer environmentally sound technologies, and how to strengthen their decision-making about choosing and using technology.
