CTCN Technical Meeting Looking Ahead: the Future of the CTCN

Row

Date:
08 September 2021 - 1:00 pm - 3:15 pm CEST

World leaders have highlighted the importance of transformative technologies to achieve national commitments and enhance Net Zero global targets. Indeed, the UN Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is seeing an increasing demand for technical assistance to support NDC implementation. To date, the CTCN has received over 230 requests for technical assistance for climate technology solutions from over 100 countries.

To address the growing demand, a technical meeting and subsequent high-level donor roundtable are being organised under the auspices of the governments of Denmark and the United Kingdom, the UN Environment Programme, and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.

This technical meeting will explore ways to ensure that the CTCN, as the implementation arm of the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism, can meet the growing demand for climate-related technology assistance from developing countries and deliver on its expected results more effectively. The meeting will offer participants a dynamic forum to shape a shared vision on the strategic direction of the CTCN, guiding its long-term planning and mobilising the support from partners necessary to ensure the achievement of the CTCN’s mandate, goals and objectives. It will also enable discussions on the implementation of the CTCN activities to date, considering results achieved and lessons learned from recent independent reviews of the effectiveness of the CTCN. Finally, the technical meeting is expected to pave the way for the high-level donor roundtable meeting at COP26 in Glasgow, where priority channels and actions for resource mobilisation for the CTCN will have been identified.

The meeting will be held as part of the World Climate Investment Summit.

The  Vice-Chair of the CTCN Advisory Board Omedi Moses Jura will participate in a panel discussion (pre-recorded) on the 8th of September - 10:15 am-11:00 am
