2 CTCN ORIGINS 2 COP 15 (Copenhagen): agreement to establish a “Technology Mechanism” COP 16 (Cancun): Technology Mechanism further elaborated (TEC and CTCN) and TEC established COP 17 (Durban): establishment of CTCN; COP to provide guidance to the CTCN through an Advisory Board; selection procedure agreed for hosting of CTCN COP 18 (Doha): formal selection of UNEP-led consortium as host

3 CTCN MISSION “To stimulate technology cooperation and enhance the development and transfer of technologies to developing country parties at their request.” 3

4 CTCN FUNCTIONS Main functions: Manage requests from developing countries NDE and deliver responses Foster collaboration and access to information and knowledge to accelerate climate technology transfer Strengthen networks, partnerships and capacity building for climate technology transfer Supported by outreach and awareness activities and a good knowledge management system 4


6 Breadth and depth of expertise and experience in: adaptation and mitigation, along all steps of the technology cycle specific technology subject areas geographic understanding and language capabilities expertise in knowledge management network development and management CONSORTIUM EXPERTISE 6

7 CTCN INSTITUTIONAL SETUP Core Centre co-managed by UNEP and UNIDO, backed by “technical resource pool” of consortium partners Main support provided through the Network 7

8 Focal point for CTCN activities at the national level o Ensuring requests are based on national circumstances and priorities o Coordinating with relevant ministries, focal points for other UNFCCC mechanisms, and the private sector, civil society, and academia to ensure CTCN services provide the best value to the country Nominations requested by UNFCCC Secretariat Some countries seeking guidance in selecting their NDE Consultations and training activities for NDEs are planned Good NDEs are essential for a well functioning CTCN! NATIONAL DESIGNATED ENTITIES 8

9 ROLES OF THE NETWORK “The members of the Network will undertake the substantive work to address requests made to the Climate Technology Centre by developing country Parties” Criteria for the Network to be determined by the CTCN Advisory Board 9


11 CTCN DELIVERY APPROACH 11 Submission of request by NDE Logging and initial screening (Core Centre Staff) Refining of request and preparation of response plan by NDE and CTC expert team Review and approval of request (Director) Submission and Response Plan Delivery of initial quick response assistance from expert team (where appropriate) Tendering of project to Network and selection of Network member for delivery of services Network implementation of agreed support Response CTC progress reviews and oversight Summary report on results and impacts Analysis and sharing of experience through peer forums and knowledge management Reporting outcomes publicly and to the Advisory Board Reporting and Evaluation

12 CTCN REQUESTS 12 The ideal request to the CTCN: o Will help create conditions for improved climate technology transfer service delivery o Benefits from political commitment and is consistent with national sustainable development strategies (NDPs, PRSPs, LEDS, NAPAs…) o Is linked to national investment plans and will unlock public or private sector investment

13 KNOWLEDGE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM 13 A comprehensive library of information on technology availability, costs, and performance; policies; and financing Captures experiences and results of technology cooperation activities Collects, analyzes, and communicates CTCN results and lessons learned and gathers external feedback from CTCN stakeholders and partners Facilitates on-line training, peer-to-peer exchange, and provision of expert advice KMS

14 Capacity building Technical support and advice for the identification of technology needs Technical assistance for implementing environmentally sound technologies Technology cooperation Catalyzing private and public investment Disseminating best practices on technology transfer ILLUSTRATIVE CTCN SERVICES 14
