This Technology Transfer Advances Uganda's
- Nationally Determined Contribution to "develop research and data collection programs and networks on the impacts and adaptation to climate change and variability".
The Climate Technology Centre is seeking proposals for resilience to climate variability in the building sector of Antigua and Barbuda.
Hurricanes, floods, and droughts are becoming increasingly destructive in Antigua and Barbuda. The recent hurricane Irma left behind three casualties, 1,800 evacuated inhabitants and 95 percent of Barbuda's buildings and infrastructure damaged or destroyed.
The aim of this CTCN Webinar on water adaptation technologies is to introduce the participants to climate change issues, adaptation and technologies in water resources management and in water dependent sectors, respectively.
Upon a request by the Lake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC), the Climate Technology Centre and Network is assisting Uganda on adaptation to climate change through improved information and planning tools for Lake Victoria.
IIGE is a research institute that promotes development, innovation and transmission of technology focused on energy efficiency and renewable energy. The institute aims to contribute to the sustainable development of the Ecuadorian society, through the implementation of energy efficient and energy renewable policies and projects.
Increasing frequency, intensity and duration of severe weather events are posing major challenges to global food security and livelihoods of rural people. Agriculture has evolved through adaptation to local circumstances for thousands of years. Local experience in responding to severe weather conditions, accumulated over generations and centuries, is valuable for developing adaptation options to current climate change.
Energy is vital to the global food system and food security, but countries will need to explore greener energy paths to address climate change. Opportunities for achieving both green energy and food security goals include solar and hydropower in Africa, biofuels in poor countries, and energy-saving cookstoves.

Nearly 22 percent of the world’s electricity is now supplied by renewable energy, and Central America is part of this global transition. The region is a worldwide leader in hydropower and geothermal energy, and most Central American countries are developing wind power projects. Yet the region is far from harvesting its enormous renewable energy resources to their fullest potentials, according to a new report from the Worldwatch Institute, The Way Forward for Renewable Energy in Central America.
Cities are engines of economic growth. Rapid urbanisation has resulted in growing challenges to urban systems and their associated vulnerability. These challenges may possibly be exacerbated with events of extreme temperature, severe rainfall, intense cyclonic storms and extended droughts. Such climate variability and climate change may impact our natural resources, health, quality of life, and viable urban development.
