In Denmark, UNEP is represented by two collaborating centres:
1. UNEP DTU Partnership, (which comprises two centres: Centre on Energy, Climate and Sustainable Development, and the Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency) and
2. UNEP DHI on water.
UNEP DTU Partnership is a leading international research and advisory institution on energy, climate and sustainable development. As a United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) Collaborating Centre, it is an integral part of UNEP’s Division of Technology, Industry and Economics (DTIE) and an active participant in both the planning and implementation of UNEP’s Climate Change Strategy and Energy Programme.
The UNEP-DHI Centre is a UNEP centre of expertise dedicated to improving the management, development and use of freshwater resources from the local to the global level. The Centre is hosted at DHI, an independent, international consulting and research-based not-for-profit foundation of more than 1000 employees, with offices in 26 countries, and with more than 30 years of experience in water resources management.
CTCN – Climate Technology Centre and Network
The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is co-lead in the hosting and management of the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN). The mission of the CTCN, the operational arm of the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism, is to stimulate technology cooperation and to enhance the development and transfer of technologies to developing countries. The CTCN assists developing country Parties at their request, building or strengthening their capacity to prepare and implement technology projects that span the technology transfer continuum. The CTCN supports public and private sector action on mitigation and adaptation, enhancing low emissions and climate-resilient development in a manner consistent with the capabilities and priorities of countries.
