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
