The Democratic Republic of the Congo plans to conduct its Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) with a Technology Action Plan (TAP), in view of the implementation of its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC). The Democratic Republic of the Congo has never initiated the process of carrying out this assessment before the development of its NDC, which is one of the new operational requirements to accelerate its implementation.
Technology transfer will have impact toward reducing vulnerability of the population hence increased resilience to climate change and well as steering the country towards a low carbon development path.
To develop a TNA to identify and prioritize technology transfer and diffusion for climate change mitigation and adaptation in key sectors in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
This work will enable the Democratic Republic of the Congo to organise its process for establishing a technology needs assessment, contribute directly to ongoing country programming process, establish a coordination mechanism and thereby aid the prioritization of actions and sectors that can be used by the Government to develop its pipeline of projects to be submitted to the Green Climate Fund.
The anticipated outcomes are envisioned to present strategies for a long-term, participatory transformational measures across the identified and prioritised sectors that will drive climate resilient and low carbon growth. A key outcome also involves strengthening country capacity.
