The CTCN conducts a series of Regional Forums to provide opportunities for NDEs, Network Members and climate technology stakeholders to meet and discuss some of the key issues of the CTCN and share experiences. CTCN Regional Forums are conducted annually at regional or sub-regional level. Information on dates and locations will be posted in the calendar section below as they become available.
Participants discuss linking CTCN technical assistance with financial mechanisms and institutions that are relevant to Climate Technologies, identify matchmaking opportunities, share experiences on the use of CTCN Technical Assistance and ideas for national and regional requests, and receive an update on the latest development of CTCN services to developing countries globally and in the region.
The events represent opportunities for NDEs and Network members to interact and strengthen their relationship with representatives of key financial institutions, regional Consortium Partners, WIPO, CTI PFAN and others.
The CTCN is coordinating with the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to conduct its Regional Forums in parallel with the GCF Structured Dialogue, to enhance collaboration between NDEs and National Designated Authorities to articulate concrete proposals to facilitate access to climate technologies, in line with art. 10 of the Paris Agreement and COP22 decisions.
