Africa is among the most vulnerable continents to climate change. By 2030, it is projected that between 75 and 250 million people on the continent will be exposed to increased water stress due to climate change. Enhancing the development, transfer and uptake of climate technology is a key pillar of the international response to climate change. Since 2009, the Technology […]
The region’s developing countries have already replaced developed countries as the largest contributors to GHG emissions, while Asian cities are plagued with some of the highest levels of air pollution in the world. Scaling up technologies that reduce both GHG emissions and air pollution in cities is therefore part of the overarching framework for prioritising technologies within the energy and […]
Countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have a geographically determined vulnerability to the impacts of climate change. Climate change projections show increasing mean temperatures rising by up to 4.5°C compared to the pre-industrial period by the end of the 21st century across the LAC region. Climate change projections are coupled with observed trends in the direction of increased energy […]
Building on two previous publications, this publication provides a new set of success stories on how countries have used their TNAs and TAPs to advance the implementation of climate technologies. It provides examples from different regions and covers different sectors. The stories highlight how TNAs are used by developing countries as a highly practical tool that provides an effective and […]
