Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Inger Andersen participated at the Global Forum on Green Cooperation Strategy, where in her opening remarks she highlighted the importance of the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) and introduced its new office in the Republic of Korea.
"By tapping into the global network of technology companies and institutions, the CTCN provides technology solutions and advice on policy, on legal and regulatory issues tailored to the needs of individual countries. I am very proud that UNEP hosts the CTCN and that the CTCN is helping countries meet their climate mitigation and adaptation technology needs. The Republic of Korea is home to the Green Climate Fund and we are very pleased that it will be soon home to the CTCN Partnership and Liaison Office that will strengthen the links between climate technology and climate finance", said I.Andersen.
The event was organized by the CTCN Network member Green Technology Center (GTC) jointly with the Ministry of Science and ICT of the Republic of Korea.
