Sustainable climate technology transfer for mitigation and adaptation take into consideration the capacities and knowledge already available in communities’ experiencing the effects of climate change, and in which the technologies and approaches are to be implemented. In this section you can for example read more about how the CTCN is working with stakeholders in Gambia on a community-based livelihood improvement program, or with the Department of Forestry in Mali to identify climate adaptation technologies with rural communities. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

Nepal is highly vulnerable to climate impacts, especially in the water sector where resources have been significantly depleted. One of the most susceptible districts is Ramechap, located above the Sunkoshi River, where the land is extremely dry and decreasing precipitation is severely impacting farmers. Water resources are especially vulnerable at high elevations where they are more sensitive to variability in rainfall patterns and timing, which contribute to increased drought frequency.

The geographical location of Honduras between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans exposes it to numerous and diverse natural hazards and extreme weather events. The impacts of climate change vary across the country: in the Caribbean, cyclones are more common, while in the center and south drought is more prevalent, along with the recurrent effects of the El Niño and La Niña phenomenon. Due to the topography, landslides are also quite common.

Developing a national framework for the standardization of stalls and procedures for a climate smart street side vendor in the BahamasType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:
There is a consensus of the growing problem with street and roadside vendors in The Bahamas. Vendors are selling their goods without the necessary permits and breaching Covid-19 orders. The government of The Bahamas is taking steps to bring street vendors into the formal economy, with the development of enabling policies and fostering agriculture production. Currently, 90% of the food is imported in The Bahamas and there is an urgent need to become more self-sufficient.

Liberia is a small West African state with borders in the north with the republic of Guinea, in east with Ivory Coast, in the west, with Sierra Leone and in the south with the Atlantic Ocean. Agriculture is a major sector of Liberia employing more than 70% of the population. However, Liberia agriculture system is rain-fed, indicating heavy dependence on rainfall. Climate change has posed serious challenge on all sectors and has adversely threatened sustainable agricultural production in Liberia.
