The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) launched its Secondment Programme by welcoming its first two participants, from the Carbon Trust and ENDA Energie, to the CTCN Secretariat in Copenhagen. The next round of the CTCN Secondment Programme is planned for the spring of 2016, the application deadline is 1 November 2015.  Interested candidates can read more here.

"This initiative reflects CTCN’s approach to partnering for sustainable change. We are very glad to have Adriana and Abdou here, who actively participate in the strategic and operational work of the CTCN, while enhancing their understanding of climate technology implementation and knowledge transfer, bringing their perspectives into our daily work", said CTCN Director Jukka Uosukainen.

The secondees actively engage in the CTCN’s three main service areas (providing technical assistance, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities on climate technologies) during their secondment with CTCN. At the same time, they share their technical and regional expertise with the CTCN Secretariat and strengthen linkages between the CTCN and their “home” institutions.

Abdou Diop is a Project Manager in Energy Efficiency at ENDA (a CTCN Consortium Partner based in Senegal). Mr. Diop has significant experience in West African renewable energy and energy  efficiency  policies, as well as the implementation  of  energy  efficiency  initiatives, including efficient  lighting-electricity  supply; efficient cooking; standards and labels; energy efficiency in buildings; and sustainable energy financing.  

Adriana Carvallo is an Innovation Associate at the Carbon Trust (a CTCN Network member headquartered in the United Kingdom with offices in Mexico, China, South Africa and the United States). In her work at the Carbon Trust, Adriana has provided incubation support to a range of clean technology start-ups and SMEs to help them commercialise their technology. Adriana has also developed economic models and quantitative analysis to help the governments of Mexico and Colombia to prioritise low carbon technologies and has provided policy recommendations to unlock the deployment of these technologies.

The Secondment programme aims to foster knowledge transfer among the CTCN and its partner institutions and thereby enhance international cooperation on technologies for climate change adaptation and mitigation.
