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.

Burundi is the 14th most vulnerable country and is the 17th least ready country–meaning that it is extremely vulnerable to, yet very unready to combat climate change effects. Climate adaptation requires changes in behavior and appropriate technologies and measures to increase the resilience to floods and drought and provide protection to the main sectors such as agriculture, (critical) infrastructure, people and the environment where the risk of storm surge and flooding is imminent.

The coastal zone is one of the nation's greatest environmental and economic assets of Liberia. However, the evolution of coastline variations is considered as one of the most dynamic processes affecting this area. Liberia has initiated its Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) in 2019. Integrated Coastal Zone Management has been identified as one of the three and the most important technologies priorities for the country along with Flood Early Warning System and Armour or Rock Revetment.
Updating of Georgia’s technology needs assessment (TNA) through development of technology road maps for prioritized technologiesType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:Approach:
Georgia is exposed to hydrometeorological hazards and natural disasters. Frequent natural disasters include landslides, floods, flash-flooding, mudflows, droughts, avalanches, heavy winds and storms. In recent years, the number of natural disasters has increased nearly three times and, in many cases, have been considered as catastrophic, causing fatalities and leading to significant economic losses.
