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.

Development of energy audit and reporting guidelines for calculation of the emission factors for fossil fuel power plantsType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:
In 2014, the energy sector contributed 53.4% of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Viet Nam. The energy sector in general and power generation in particular plays an important role for achieving the target of reducing greenhouse gas emissions under the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC).

Cambodia is vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Although the Government has tried the utmost effort to install and contract electricity line rural areas, there is still no still access to the national grid. To meet the objectives of the Government to access to electricity consumption, off-grid (solar, battery, kerosene lamp) has been introduced, especially in the remote areas.
Updating of Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) and Technology Action Plan (TAP) for the implementation of NDCType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ReviewCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Cote D'Ivoire 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). 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 Cote D'Ivoire.

Vanuatu is a small island country in the Pacific which depends almost entirely on imported fossil fuel for its energy and transport needs. The continuous reliance on these fossil fuels is not only unsustainable for Vanuatu but goes against Vanuatu’s national climate change mitigation ambition as reflected in its Nationally Determined Contributions, its Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction Policy, its National Energy Roadmap and Vanuatu’s Sustainable Development Plan.

Workshop on sand and dust storms (SDS) technologies to control dust storms sources with focus on degraded lands, dried up riverbeds and lakes, and plains and agricultural fieldsType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:
FAST TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
During the last two decades, sand and dust storms (SDS) phenomena have escalated in the world and particularly in West Asia and the Southern and Western parts of Iran, especially in Khuzestan province. The affected areas are faced with low food security. This is a threat to human life, flora and fauna in the affected regions. According to several studies, the intensity and frequency of dust storms due to climate change has increased in Iran.
Identification of the most suitable direct use applications and technologies in low to medium temperature geothermal systems in six African countriesType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:
The technical assistance for direct use of geothermal energy in low to medium temperature geothermal systems was requested by six African countries in the Eastern Africa region. The countries lie within the Great East African Rift Valley (both at the eastern and western branches), a region that possesses a remarkable geothermal energy resource potential that can be used for power generation and direct use application.
Development of an institutional framework for the installment, use and management of solar PV systems in the GambiaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:
In finding a sustainable, affordable and reliable energy solution to meet its needs, the Gambia has incorporated in its energy strategy a solution to leapfrog previous development pathways and power its economies and societies through renewable energy decarbonisation of the electricity sector. Solar PV is the most common renewable energy technology used in the Gambia and remains the most promising renewable energy technology in the provision of electricity and water pumping in certain parts of the country.
