This Technology Transfer Advances South Sudan's


According to the 2017 Climate Change Variability Index, South Sudan ranks among the five countries in the world most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Collection of data on greenhouse gas emissions is a very big challenge and this is attributed mainly to the state of insecurity in the country as well as lack of financial resources and limited technical and institutional capacity in South Sudan.

Technology is an important aspect to be taken into consideration in climate change adaptation and mitigation. In South Sudan, the absence of comprehensive Technology Needs Assessment (TNA)  increases the difficulties of determining the level and extent of support needed for implementation of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), national development priorities and Sustainable Development Goals. This TNA project proposal is the first for South Sudan.

CTCN Support
