At COP27, the CTCN is launching its third Programme of Work for 2023-2027. This programme responds to the need to rapidly accelerate the shift towards climate resilience and emissions reduction, and aims to facilitate the implementation of mitigation and adaptation action, delivering transformational change and achieving sustainable outcomes and impacts.
As the implementation arm of the Technology Mechanism of the UNFCCC, the UN Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) plays a crucial role in facilitating the transfer of climate technologies. Established by the Conference of Parties, the CTCN connects countries’ technology goals with world-class expertise, providing targeted interventions that help unlock transformational climate change action. It provides technical assistance at the request of developing countries on technology issues, offers access to information and knowledge on climate technologies, and fosters collaboration among
