New Publication: Stakeholders’ perspectives on opportunities and challenges for climate technology facilitation in developing countries: informing the operation of the Climate Technology Centre and Network
The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) is the operational arm of the Technology Mechanism established by Parties under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The CTCN works to reduce the risks and costs of technology development and transfer by assisting developing countries make better informed decisions about mitigation and adaptation technologies.
In the process of establishing the CTCN, a widespread stakeholders consultation was undertaken with a twofold objective, namely to (1) disseminate information with regard to the CTCN and the services it is mandated to deliver and to (2) seek stakeholders views and expectations.
Those consultations were conducted as semi-structured dialogues where regional experts expressed their views on barriers, needs and priorities and on how the CTCN can best support countries in the respective regions. The experts invited to the workshops included a wide spectrum of stakeholder types with the objective to capture a broad range of perspectives. This paper distils the essence of the deliberations and reports on the outcomes of those consultations.
