Project Implementation for Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN)

UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre provides support to the CTCN's capacity building, networking, knowledge sharing and awareness-raising activities.

The CTCN is the operational arm of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)’s Technology Mechanism. It is hosted by UN Environment in collaboration with United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and with the support of 11 independent organizations having expertise in climate technologies, including UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre.

The CTCN is a demand-driven mechanism as its services are offered upon request by developing countries, and the volume and specific nature of activities ultimately depends on countries’ requirements and needs.

UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre has supported a total of 17 requests from countries, of which 13 are focused on or include aspects of technologies for adaptation.

In Jordan, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Guyana, Zambia, Tunisia, UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre has provided capacity building support for preparing project proposals to access funding.

In Kenya, we have undertaken research on low cost green technologies for sustainable water service delivery.

In Benin, UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre helped establish a sustainable system of collection and dissemination of agro-meteorological information for producers to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change.

UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre has also helped develop a climate-smart agriculture manual for agriculture education in Zimbabwe

In addition, UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre provided technical guidance and support for conducting a Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) in Pakistan, assisted with developing subnational technology roadmaps in South Africa as well as building capacity for climate change science and creating awareness on Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) amongst Civil Society in Swaziland.

Currently, UNEP Copenhagen Climate Centre provides technical guidance and support for conducting a Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) in Cook Islands.
