The technology framework adopted at the Climate Change Conference in Katowice provides overarching guidance to the work of the TEC while serving the Paris Agreement and recognizes that there is a pressing need to accelerate and strengthen technological innovation so that it can transfer environmentally and socially sound, cost-effective and better-performing climate technologies on a larger and more widespread scale. It also indicates that fostering innovation could be done inter alia through new collaborative approaches to climate technology research, development and demonstration (RD&D).  

Responding to this mandate, the TEC, which has been working on technology innovation and RD&D since 2013, agreed to produce a compilation of good practices and lessons learned on countries' RD&D.
