The TNA discovered an important technological gap in Argentina's monitoring of the climate. The meteorological stations were only checked periodically, rendering the data collected highly unreliable. A key criterion was thus the introduction of continuous data collection to provide reliable data. This was vital for introducing adaptation measures.

Based on the TNA and funded by the Green Climate Fund, Armenia's Ministry of Nature Protection launched a project in 2016. The project will build the market for energy efficiency building retrofits in Armenia, leading to sizeable energy savings and GHG emission reductions (up to 5.8 million tCO2 of direct and indirect emission savings over the 20-year equipment lifetimes), green job creation and energy poverty reduction. It will directly benefit over 200,000 people and will catalyse private and public sector investment of approximately USD 100 million.

Based on climate scenarios in Burkina Faso, it was calculated that the installation of a 10MWc generator would result in 5.5 kWh produced per m2 per day. This constitutes the basis of consumer need and showed that, should the technology be fully established, Burkina Faso could reduce its emissions by approximately 11 ggCO2e per year.

Being the primary sector in the country, agriculture production generates approximately four to eight million tonnes of residual waste. This waste, together with the waste generated by cities, is not recycled and releases significant amounts of greenhouse gasses. Accordingly, the TNA has led to biogas technologies and the production of briquettes from forestry waste being prioritized as measures to curb the emissions released from the residual waste. As a result, two companies, ADERCI and SITRADE, will incorporate biogas production into their waste management plants.

The TNA led to a prioritization of the efficient coal combustion technology. The increased efficiency will minimize greenhouse gasses and particularly NOx emissions. The Technology Action Plan details a project aiming to reduce coal dust by 180,000 tonnes in the town of Ekibastuz, a city of roughly 120,000 residents.

KawiSawi is a newly established investment fund in Kenya and Rwanda. The fund is based on the TNA results and it is supported by the Green Climate Fund. Its purpose is to drive off-grid solar power in East Africa, where it through investments in 10-15 clean energy companies will provide household solar technologies. The project has a lifespan of twelve years and it is projected that a total emission of 1.5 million tCO2 will be avoided.

The Technology Action Plans proposes a large-scale project tasked with introducing cost-efficient agriculture conservation technology to the Lebanese agriculture sector. From 2015-2025 the goal is to shift 19,000 ha to conversion agriculture. With a budget of USD 3.5 million and an estimated return of USD 30 million, the project is both economically and environmentally viable, cutting across prioritized sectors, as the technology strengthens crop resilience, conserves water and reduces CO2 emissions.

Based on the outcomes of the TNA, a feasibility study was carried out highlighting the emission reduction potential of establishing solar power plants, a technology prioritized by the TNA. The study showed that replacing the generating capacity of 43 MW diesel with solar power plants would lead to a reduction of 280,744 tCO2e. Apart from reductions in fossil fuel use, this development will ease the high price per kWh and help to reach an electrification rate of 35% by 2030, which is one of the objectives of Mauritania's NDC.

The purpose was to encourage implementation of the national solar pumping programme while also expanding its scope. As a result, the scale of the pilot programme already launched by the Moroccan government was changed to cover the distribution of solar pumps for irrigation. Between 2015 and 2025, 30,000 pumps will be installed, instead of the initial target of approximately 5,000 pumps over the next five years. This process will help develop a structured and professional solar pumping supply sector in the country.

Peru is regionally diverse, with coastal plains in the West, Andean uplands in the centre and a tropical region in the East where it encompasses a large part of the Amazon. The TNA process mirrored these regions particularities, as they each face specific challenges. Experience show how this diversity makes it impossible to conduct effective assessments within a broad national scope. Accordingly, the TNA team adopted an approach in which technologies were chosen based on their regional relevance, as each region calls for different technological needs.

Tanzania's new Technology Action Plan for the water sector identifies smart water meters as a key priority for Tanzania to address the widespread problem of water that is lost before reaching the consumer. The plan identifies and analyses barriers and the enabling framework conditions, which are required for introducing water leakage management through smart water metering systems. Thereby it starts the digitalization of the water sector in Tanzania. Embarking into a smart water metering programme is a huge challenge and involves extensive planning, training of personnel, customer information system and management. A higher awareness of water consumption is a key contribution by the smart water meters, but digitalization will also have a significant impact on preserving the country’s water resources in general.

By expanding on pre-existing national strategies in Tunisia, the TNA recommends increasing conservation agriculture practices. The Technology Action Plan details a project to implement this suggestion. The goal is to increase the area under conservation agriculture from its current 12,000 ha to 33,000 ha by 2025 and 180,000 ha by 2030, ultimately reaching 350,000 ha by 2050. This ambition will leverage the potential of conservation agriculture to ensure the sustainability of the grain system and improve current and future food security.

One of the outcomes of the TNA has been the identification and selection of wave energy as a highly relevant technology to be included in Uruguay's mitigation efforts. Preliminary estimates shows that, by incorporating wave energy into its renewable energy mix, Uruguay could potentially reduce emissions by 318,000 tCO2e per year.

The TNA emphasized integrated coastal zone management as one of the priority areas for adaptation in Vietnam. The construction of sea dykes, wetland rehabilitation and flood warning systems is essential in increasing the country’s resilience to the increasing impacts of sea-level rises, typhoons and flooding.

Based on the outcomes of the TNA, a large-scale project has been launched to support the Government of Zambia’s renewable energy feed-in tariff (REFIT) policy. With funding from the Green Climate Find, it will provide technical assistance, support local financial institutions and build the capacity for rural electrification. The project has a lifespan of 23 years, and it is anticipated that emissions of 4,000,000 tCO2e will be avoided.
