Creating Technology Solutions for Enhanced Climate Action
A central focus of a side event on the UNFCCC’s Technology Mechanism held 7 June in Bonn was on the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN). The CTCN promotes the accelerated transfer of environmentally sound technologies for climate change mitigation and adaptation in developing countries. The CTCN is fully up and running and has attracted its first eight requests from six countries this year.
Congratulating the CTCN, UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres said:
