Knowledge Partners

Knowledge partners support CTCN’s mandate to foster collaboration and access to information and knowledge in order to accelerate climate technology transfer. Through its knowledge partner network, the CTCN generates, manages and shares knowledge, experience and good practices at the national, regional and global level, taking into account traditional knowledge and practices. Knowledge partners include Consortium partners, Network members, UN agencies, academic institutions, non-governmental organizations, private sector and other reliable sources of climate technology information.

  • The Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment) are working in partnership, with co-funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF), to accelerate the adoption, deployment, and investment in environmentally sound technologies in Asia and the Pacific. 

    The climate technology network secretariat, based in the Asia & the Pacific Office of UN Environment in Bangkok, works with national climate change technology focal points (NDEs of the Climate Technology Centre and Network) to support countries in scaling up the transfer of technologies for enabling implementation of pre-2020 actions and NDCs. The secretariat has a three-pronged approach: 
    - Creating and strengthening national institutional arrangements to facilitate climate technology transfer 
    - Knowledge and information sharing between established technology institutions and partner countries via a web-platform and e-newsletter to facilitate access to expert knowledge, news on emerging technologies, best practices, trainings, and private sector information
    - Working with partner country focal points to identify priority areas and design and develop programmes based on policy and legal frameworks required to facilitate technology use and NDC implementation, as well as financing incentives and mechanisms to promote the use of technology
