This technical assistance is funded through the Adaptation Fund Climate Innovation Accelerator (AFCIA) Programme, and implemented by our Network member, the Nairobi-based center for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD).

Our Activities

The CTCN is the implementation arm of the Technology Mechanism of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, and is hosted by the UN Environment Programme. The Centre promotes the accelerated transfer of environmentally sound technologies for low carbon and climate resilient development at the request of developing countries. The CTC provides technology solutions, capacity building and advice on policy, legal and regulatory frameworks tailored to the needs of individual countries by harnessing the expertise of a global network of technology companies and institutions.

 

The CTCN’s third Programme of Work 2023-2027 aims to enhance transformational impact and scale across its core service areas through two proven technology enablers and five system transformations. With this new programme, the CTCN acknowledges the need to rapidly accelerate the shift towards climate resilience and emissions reduction. It will continue delivering on its mandate to respond to country-driven requests with a focus on strengthening developing country capacity to address technology challenges and opportunities for adaptation and mitigation.
