This Technology Transfer Advances Uganda's
- Nationally Determined Contribution to "develop research and data collection programs and networks on the impacts and adaptation to climate change and variability".
The aim of this CTCN Webinar on water adaptation technologies is to introduce the participants to climate change issues, adaptation and technologies in water resources management and in water dependent sectors, respectively.
Upon a request by the Lake Victoria Basin Commission (LVBC), the Climate Technology Centre and Network is assisting Uganda on adaptation to climate change through improved information and planning tools for Lake Victoria.
IIGE is a research institute that promotes development, innovation and transmission of technology focused on energy efficiency and renewable energy. The institute aims to contribute to the sustainable development of the Ecuadorian society, through the implementation of energy efficient and energy renewable policies and projects.
Increasing frequency, intensity and duration of severe weather events are posing major challenges to global food security and livelihoods of rural people. Agriculture has evolved through adaptation to local circumstances for thousands of years. Local experience in responding to severe weather conditions, accumulated over generations and centuries, is valuable for developing adaptation options to current climate change.
Energy is vital to the global food system and food security, but countries will need to explore greener energy paths to address climate change. Opportunities for achieving both green energy and food security goals include solar and hydropower in Africa, biofuels in poor countries, and energy-saving cookstoves.

This study provides a mapping of Norwegian CSOs working on energy and development issues in developing countries and an overview assessment of how the CSOs fit with the priorities of the Norwegian Government’s Clean Energy for Development Initiative. The study has been commisioned by Norad, the Norwegian agency for development aid.
This report presents the findings of research undertaken in six villages in two drought-prone districts of Andhra Pradesh in India Mahbubnagar and Anantapur. This FAO study uses gender, institutional, and climate analyses to document the trends in climate variability that men and women farmers are facing and their responses to ensure food security. The research uses gender-sensitive qualitative and quantitative methods and gender analysis techniques to capture the voices of both men and women and quantify the degree to which men’s and women’s responses to climate variability differ.
This report assesses opportunities and challenges for the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) in sub-Saharan African countries, namely Burkina Faso, Democratic Republic Congo (DRC), Ethiopia, Malawi, Mali, Mozambique, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia. It analyses the technical potentials for CDM projects per sector as well as a review of the Kyoto infrastructure and an evaluation of Grid Emissions Factors.
