Following the two workshops conducted last year in Vietnam and Bangladesh, the UN Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) has participated at the workshops on private sector contribution to climate change adaptation in Indonesia and Thailand. The workshops were organized by the Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry (METI) of Japan, the Ministry of Environment and Forestry of Indonesia, the Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy and Planning (ONEP) of Thailand and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment (MoNRE) of Thailand.
The participants noted that climate change effects are becoming more pronounced, and adaptation is becoming increasingly important. As emphasized by the representatives of Japan, Japan has vast experience in disaster management, which can be a valuable input for adaptation measures in other countries.
Ms. Clara Landeiro from the CTCN introduced the Centre's technical assistance portfolio, including support ratio in adaptation and mitigation, technology fields, and sectors. She explained about the role of the National Designated Entities (NDEs) and CTCN network members as key pieces to obtain CTCN funding, as well as opportunities such as the Adaptation Fund Climate Innovation Accelerator.
