Climate-KIC becomes a member of the Climate Technology Centre and Network
Climate-KIC will be joining a global group of technology experts from civil society, the private sector and research institutions dedicated to technology transfer.
CTCN is the operational arm of the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism, hosted by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
The Centre promotes the accelerated transfer of environmentally sound technologies for low carbon and climate resilient development at the request of developing countries. They provide technology solutions, capacity building and advice on policy, legal and regulatory frameworks tailored to the needs of individual countries.
“Through our Network, we bring together a diverse global community of climate technology decision makers, suppliers and financiers to identify barriers to technology transfer, exchange technology experience, and provide technical assistance and capacity building to developing countries. We are delighted to welcome Climate-KIC into our Network”, says CTCN Director Jukka Uosukainen.
Ian Short Interim Climate-KIC CEO says “Active participation in CTCN will enable Climate-KIC and our partners to deliver climate innovation globally. Climate-KIC aims to strengthen and build relationships with Network members whilst contributing to knowledge sharing and technical assistance.”
