Launched at COP21 in Paris, the CTCN Stakeholder Forum will host three workshops in 2016, the first in coordination with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)’s Green initiative, the Private Finance Advisory Network (FPAN), DNV GL, CIPIT and the Kenya Climate Innovation Centre. One hundred and fifty stakeholders will gather at Strathmore University in Nairobi, Kenya, from 5-7 April, to discuss the deployment of key technology solutions in Kenya, Burundi, Ethiopia, Rwanda, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda.
The CTCN is mandated to act on behalf of the UNFCCC to leverage innovative private sector and civil society climate technology solutions in service of the identified needs of the developing world and emerging economies. In addition to its work to provide technical assistance, information and capacity building services through the strength of its diverse network, the CTCN will be partnering with like-minded organizations and assembling its network of national focal points in sub-regional fora for pragmatic, action-oriented discussions with CTC Network members about key transformative technologies and the steps necessary to enhance their full deployment.
In 2016, the CTCN Stakeholder Forum will focus on three specific regions:
- East Africa (April 2016)
- South East Asia/Mekong/South Asia (August 2016)
- Central America and the Caribbean (October 2016)
