The enhanced guidance for preparing TAPs is an opportunity to support the new technology framework and the long term vision, shared by Parties to the UNFCCC on the importance of fully realising technology development and transfer in order to improve resilience to climate change and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The enhanced guidance for preparing TAPs is designed to assist countries in making informed decisions in their technology choices, and to articulate their own technology actions and formulate appropriate activities. Building on lessons from earlier TNA efforts, it offers a systematic approach for conducting TAPs in order to address barriers and accelerate development, transfer, deployment and dissemination of priority technologies. It also provides processes for addressing and overcoming gaps
in enabling frameworks and capacities, being a technology responsive element of overall climate change strategies and plans, such as NDCs, and NAPs.
