1 Works of EGTT and NAPA Process Technologies Needs Assessments Innovative Financing Adaptation Technology

2 o The purpose of TNAs is to assist in identifying and analysing priority technology needs, which can form the basis for a portfolio of EST projects and programmes which can facilitate the transfer of, and access to, the ESTs and know-how in the implementation of Article 4, paragraph 5, of the Convention

3 TNAs -- a set of country-driven activities that identify and determine the mitigation and adaptation technology priorities of Parties,…, particularly developing country Parties They involve different stakeholders in a consultative process to identify the barriers to technology transfer and measures to address these barriers through sectoral analyses These activities may address soft and hard technologies, such as mitigation and adaptation technologies, identify regulatory options and develop fiscal and financial incentives and capacity building

4 GEF has provided funding to 94 non-Annex I Parties to conduct TNAs through its interim financing for capacity-building in priority areas – enabling activities phase II (also known as “top- ups”). 80 are being supported by UNDP and 14 by the UNEP. Some 34 TNA reports are available “Conducting TNAs for climate change” handbook, produced in collaboration with CTI, the EGTT and the secretariat, was made available to Parties in 2004

5 MitigationAdaptation Activity 2: Identify technology criteria for assessment Activity 3: Prioritize sectors and select key technology(ies) Activity 4: Identify barriers and policy needs* Activity 6: Prepare a synthesis report Review GHG inventory for mitigation potential Identify key sectors and characteristics Review national plans in identified sectors Review available vulnerability studies Identify vulnerable sectors Review national plans in vulnerable sectors Review technology options and resources Prepare list of sectors with mitigation potential Develop criteria to apply to vulnerable sectors Compile a list of prioritized mitigation technologies and key sectors Prioritize vulnerable sectors Identify characteristics of prioritized sectors Compile responses to address vulnerability Activity 5: Define and select options Conduct environ- mental technology impact assessment Assess capacity to use mitigation technologies Conduct environ- mental technology impact assessment Assess capacity to use adaptation technologies Implementation actions Rank and select prioritized mitigation technologies and key sectors Identify practical options for priority sectors Identify responses and technologies Rank and prioritize applicable technologies Assess adequacy of financial resources Ensure transparency Identify potential synergies Identify ways to reduce barriers Continue stakeholder involvement Revise plans as needed Activity 1: Prepare a preliminary overview of the sectors Cross-cutting issues (Stakeholder engagement and barrier analysis) Full report (including a description of the stakeholder process adopted, an evaluation of sectoral needs and opportunities…, a statement of data gaps, project concepts/proposals, potential sources of funding) Summary report in NC Input from NC, NAPAs, national development plans Output to NC, NAPAs national development plans Communicate TNA findings

6 TNAs | A simplified view of the needs assessments process  Convene meeting to explore objectives and scope  Define process for ongoing involvement of all stakeholders  Identify relevant stakeholders; consult key agencies  Establish the team ~ lead agency ~ lead technical institution ~ other players  Define priority sectors and sub-sectors  Establish criteria for selecting technology transfer priorities  Further technology & barrier assessment & stakeholder consultations  Define alternative actions  Select priority technologies  Compile and supplement technology and market information  Select actions  Prepare needs assessment report  Securing resources  Development of implementation strategies  Integration with existing development programs  Preparation of technology transfer plans  Implementation of technology transfer actions  Ongoing review and refinement of actions Forming institution arrangements Preparing & implementing technology transfer actions & plans Needs assessments process

7 TNAs | What are commonly identified adaptation technologies in TNAs?


9 Technical paper on innovative options for financing the development and transfer (FCCC/TP/2006/1) Objectives: –Highlight issues surrounding topic of innovative financing for technology transfer related to climate change –Analyse progress in the area of innovative financing, both in public and private sector –Present conclusions and suggest next steps

10 Multilateral and other activities on innovative financing Financial opportunities under the UNFCCC

11 Improving access to financing Improving access to public-sector financing –Create synergies with other policy areas: Energy policy and energy security Poverty alleviation Industrial and economic development Mobilizing private-sector financing –Capacity building of financiers –Market development instruments –Rules and regulations –Taxes, levies and subsidies

12 Understanding and demonstrating a mastery of these common ingredients, combined with knowing the audience will greatly increase the chances of success. The guidebook explains these common ingredients using a question-and-answer framework: What is being proposed? - The core concept Where will the proposal be implemented? - The setting Who will champion the proposal and see it to completion, and who else must be involved? - The team How will the proposal be implemented? - Implementation plans Why is the proposal important and why should it be supported? - Expectations What if things do not go as planned? - Contingencies To Whom is the proposal addressed? - The audience

13 The guidebook is structured around five stand-alone-modules Chapter 1 is a summary of the entire guidebook. Chapter 2, “Before preparing a proposal”, presents the seven-question approach Chapter 3, “Preparing a proposal”, step-by-step approach to the issues to be addressed Chapter 4, “Presenting a proposal”, addresses the requirements of getting a well-prepared proposal Chapter 5, “Customizing a proposal”, addresses the needs of proposals specifically targeted to donors who require a logical framework presentation A CD containing all spreadsheets is attached to the guidebook

14 The EGTT cooperates with the Climate Technology Initiative to initiate a Private Financing Advisory Network to provide further technical assistance to project proponents in developing countries in the preparation of project financing proposals to facilitate access to financing Several projects have been identified and they are in the process of being funded by private sector investment

15 Technologies for Adaptation Focusing on 5 main areas Coastal zones Water resources Agriculture Public health Infrastructure

18 Some Thoughts TNA, NAPA, NC are closely linked and mutually complementary to each other Synergy of all assessments is crucial for national implementation of adaptation programmes and activities Implementations of well coordinated projects with priority in socio-economic development Phasing NAPA implementation into national development takes time, it could start on sectoral basis Regional Economic Commissions e.g. UNESCAP UNECA and UNECLAC have long experience in socio-economic development, could assist in NAPA implementation
