Endogenous technologies refer to new technologies developed within (or based on the initiative of) a country through research, development, and demonstration. It also refers to technologies acquired through understanding, adapting, utilizing, and replicating already-existing technologies. Below you will find publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring endogenous technologies further.
Developing a national policy for deploying and scaling up E-mobility and supporting sustainable infrastructure in Papua New GuineaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Papua New Guinea’s economic development will require considerable growth in the coverage and quality of its state transport network. The total road network is 30 000 kilometers, of which 8460 km are state roads. Only 28% of the 8460 km of state roads were in a good condition as noted in 2010. A comprehensive program of rehabilitating existing roads and constructing new roads would expand the state road network to 25 000 km by 2035.

Vanuatu has set ambitious targets of reaching 100% renewable energy for electricity production by 2030, requiring 15% energy savings through energy efficiency measures. However, progress towards achieving such measures requires effective policies, relevant legislation, information-based planning, and private sector participation, amongst others, to facilitate activities towards meeting the national energy targets.

Easily deployable water-filled flood barrier that can be used to prevent damage from flooding and to store water vapor-tight to ensure water availability in times of droughtType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ImplementationCountries:
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.
