This Technology Transfer Advances Swaziland's

  • Nationally Determined Contribution to strengthen the country's technology capacity building and skills training and to "participate in research, pilot projects and planning and implementation actions".


Though Swaziland is experiencing the impacts of climate change, its civil society has a relatively low awareness of climate change issues. Moreover, climate change is not currently being adequately entrenched into NGO activities. Education, training and public awareness are critical to effectively engage civil society in climate change adaptation and mitigation work.
