Capacity building and training

A country cannot mitigate or adapt to climate change without first strengthening skills and the knowledge to do so. The CTCN works with network members and local stakeholders to provide information, training and support to build and/or strengthen the capacity of developing countries to identify, maintain and adapt climate technology solutions.  Capacity building and training can enable decision-makers to initiate change on local and national level. As part of this effort, the CTCN strives to develop analytical tools, policies and best practices for country-driven climate mitigation and adaptation. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

    • Nationally Determined Contribution to avoid 1.8 MtCO2e of future emissions, reducing its emissions by 40% compared to the reference scenario. Implementing conditional measures would enable the reduction of an additional 0.9 MtCO2e, or 20% of GHG emissions by 2030 compared to the reference scenario. The conditional mitigation scenario would therefore allow the Republic of Djibouti to maintain its level of emissions at the equivalent of 2010 levels.
