  • Access to Climate Change Technology by Developing Counties: A Practical Strategy

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

These are non-solutions, or at best partial solutions, because they would not deliver adequate results. Most of these approaches are based on an outmoded model of patronizing relationships between technology owners (developed country parties) and passive recipients of technology transfer (developing country parties).
