What can climate technologies do across all sectors to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that cause climate change?

Welcome to our fifth webinar in our new series. Join our CTCN Consortium Partner Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) for this introductory webinar on climate technologies for mitigation.  Learn more about technology options across sectors, including energy, transport, agriculture, forestry, and industry. Find out how mitigation technologies can be applied in transforming energy supply systems, how we design our built environments for human settlements, in industrial uses, and in managing and changing our land use.  The webinar also touches upon costs, benefits and policy options that can be used to encourage uptake of mitigation technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and accelerate sustainable development.
