As part of its capacity building services, the CTCN created the Incubator Programme to support Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to strengthen institutional capacities and identify technology priorities to achieve adaptation and mitigation targets, with support from international technology experts. The Incubator Programme helps LDCs bring together key national stakeholders around the National Designated Entities to identify and prioritise specific technology actions for NDC implementation through the development of a technology roadmap.
