The Climate Technology Centre welcomed Amis de l'Afrique Francophone from Benin (AMAF-Benin) as its 400th Network member. This global network is comprised of technology experts from civil society, finance, the private sector and research institutions around the world. Over the past year, Network members were selected by CTCN to provide technical assistance at the request of countries, participated in CTCN Regional Forums, hosted CTCN technology webinars, and disseminated their research and case studies via CTCN’s Knowledge Platform.
“Through our Network, we bring together a diverse global community of climate technology decision makers, suppliers and financiers to identify barriers to technology transfer, exchange technology experience, and provide technical assistance and capacity building to developing countries”, says CTCN Director Jukka Uosukainen.
AMAF-Benin's mission is to help to address socio-economic and environmental problems in Benin, especially with regards to vulnerable people. AMAF-BENIN is involved in conservation of forest and wetlands, biodiversity and ecosystems.
The CTCN is built on the foundation that civil society and the private sector actively partner with governments to facilitate enhanced action on technology development and transfer. The Climate Technology Centre reviews applications based on applicants’ experience in climate technology policy, capacity building, knowledge sharing and/or implementation. Network membership is free.
Approved Network Members are eligible to bid for CTCN technical assistance work which is provided at the request of developing countries.
