The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), in the context of the Incubator Programme, is holding national consultations in Zambia, as part of a national workshop on Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) and Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) implementation.
"Through the Incubator Programme, Zambia will develop a roadmap on conservation farming which will help the country to reach the targets included in its NDCs. Zambia is committed, with support from CTCN, to diversifying its energy sources to reduce the over-reliance on hydroelectricity and charcoal. Due to the impact of climate change and the growing energy demand, Zambia’s water and forestry resources are dwindling", said Mr. Ben Makayi from the Ministry of Higher Education, the National Designated Entity of Zambia.
The CTCN Incubator Programme supports Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to implement the climate change actions included in their NDCs through technology roadmaps. The national consultations aim at selecting a technology, to help advance NDC implementation through a technology roadmap. The Programme is tailored to each country’s stated needs and often includes:
• strengthening institutional capacities
• identifying technology priorities; and
• developing technical assistance requests in live with existing national objectives.
The Incubator in Zambia is implemented by CTCN Consortium Partner, the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR).
