The Role of Development Co-operation in Climate-related Technology Transfer

The rapid and large-scale deployment of technology solutions in developing countries for climate change mitigation and adaptation is essential for meeting climate objectives globally.

While technology transfer to developing countries is a key condition and enabler for development progress, structural bottlenecks exist which often significantly slow the transfer of climate technologies, thus hindering mitigation and adaptation actions and ultimately undermining the achievement of sustainable development.

By building on the findings of the forthcoming OECD-UNEP DTU Partnership working paper “Technology transfer for climate mitigation and adaptation: Analysing needs and development assistance support in technology transfer processes”, this event will address the issue of climate technologies transfer and the role of development co-operation in supporting this process.
