The CTCN Forum was an occasion to develop and strengthen the regional network of NDEs and their relationship with other technology stakeholders, with a view to identify matchmaking opportunities to CTCN requests or other climate technology activities. Participants dioscussed the Paris Outcome in relation to Technology Transfer and Technology Mechanism, linkages between the Technology and Finance Mechanism; as well as shared experiences on set up and activities of NDEs at national level and use of CTCN Technical Assistance.
The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) presents its Progress report (2014- August 2015), which highlights CTCN results in key services (technical assistance, access to information and scaling up international collaboration).
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.
In this webinar, Grant Ballard-Tremeer, founder and director of Eco (a member of CTCN), presented the elements of good practice in low-carbon climate resilient project development.
