Identification of Technologies for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation


This Technology Transfer Advances Armenia's

  • Nationally Determined Contribution to strive to achieve ecosystem neutral GHG emissions in 2050 (equivalent to 2.07 tons/per capita per annum) with the support of adequate (necessary and sufficient) international financial, technological and capacity building assistance, and to ensure adequate technological assistance and create a favorable environment for technology development and transfer.


Armenia is a landlocked mountainous country with vulnerable ecosystems. Thus, climate change adaptation and mitigation are among national priorities. Identification of the most relevant technologies and their promotion among stakeholders in Armenia is a weak point for the country in this regard. There is a lack of knowledge of existing technologies, lack of experience in identification of stakeholders, preparation of proposals, and formation of necessary alliances, necessary for efficient technology transfer.

Requested CTCN Response

  • Identification of the most relevant technologies for the priority objectives, e.g. new high-performance materials for buildings thermal insulation; non-energy intensive substitutes of metal reinforcement; energy-saving equipment for production sites/electric lighting; combined energy generators for rural areas, etc. 
  • Development of a comprehensive plan for selected technologies' promotion among key stakeholders; and support for the implementation of the plan
  • Provision of tools and trainings on how to prepare proposals to identified stakeholders as well as on legal issues relating to technology transfer
  • Preparation of a financial model (including operational expenditures), and a legal model, in order to develop agreements between the technology developers and stakeholders
  • Guidance and support for technology customization and widespread deployment. Facilitation to expand the range of partners and stakeholders for technology implementation/commercialization.

Relevant Technologies and Approaches

Expected Results

  • Formation of a national process identification and development of technologies most relevant to country's needs 
  • Strengthened capacity to develop proposals, establish stakeholder alliances, and other actions necessary for efficient technology transfer
  • Elimination of barriers that hinder the transfer of climate technologies
  • Formation of sustainable innovation platform for environmentally sound technologies, and increased investments in this field.
