The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) together with the Radboud University (the Netherlands) organized a summer school on the climate action for sustainable development. There were 28 participants from 23 different countries of which CTCN is sponsoring 15 participants from the Least Developed Countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Benin, Chad, Djibouti, Guinea, Malawi, Myanmar, Mozambique, Senegal, Sudan, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia).
The objective was to engage in discussions on the prospects and attractiveness of specific mitigation and urban adaptation technologies, practices and policies from environmental, technical, economic, social and institutional points of view, and the progress of implementing these options:
• Identify the current status and requirements of the country and regional needs related to climate change mitigation and/or urban adaptation;
• Introduce novel instruments for international climate policy-making;
• Introduce mitigation and urban adaptation linkages to sustainable development goals, low-emission pathway development and gender mainstreaming;
• Develop a country specific example of an implementation action plan for a relevant climate technology for the nominee's country of origin.
Radboud Summer school is one of the larger summer schools in Europe.
