The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) was invited to present on the work of the Centre during the meeting of the Technical Committee of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) Technology Centre (ETC) and contribute to the development of its work program for 2019-2020. Possible collaborations were discussed during the meeting.
The Centre is a specialized regional center and a subsidiary body of the UN-ESCWA established in 2010. It is hosted by the Government of Jordan at the Royal Scientific Society in Amman. The Centre aims at developing the technological and scientific knowledge of various stakeholders in major economic sectors in member states. The main objectives of the Centre are to strengthen the capabilities of local, national and regional stakeholders in member countries to develop, transfer and adapt technologies; and improve the legal and commercial framework for the transfer such technologies.
The CTCN also encouraged all member countries to appoint their Nationally Designated Entities (NDEs) if they have not already done so.
