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.

They include unique and often fragile ecosystems that also provide essential services to communities outside their boundaries. For instance, 60% of the hydroelectricity produced in Peru comes from rivers in protected areas (a service estimated at $320 million USD), while seven of its most popular tourist destinations are PNAs.
