UNDP Calls for Climate-Friendly Solutions to be Exhibited at the Poznan Climate Meetings

Unfccc8 May 2008: In advance of the fourteenth session of the Conference of the Parties to the UN Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the fourth Meeting of the Parties to the Kyoto Protocol, to be held in December 2008 in Poznan, Poland, UNDP Poland has called for the submission of innovative climate-friendly solutions and best practices to be exhibited during the meeting.

The call for submission notes that best practices should be able to show how they can be scaled-up and replicated in other countries and ultimately support the ongoing political negotiations, providing ready-to-use examples of innovation. Suggested areas of focus are: inventions; technological and organizational innovations to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions; examples of successful transfer of specific technologies and their popularization in the developing countries; and technological solutions supporting the adaptation to climate change. Organizations interested in showcasing innovative projects are invited to provide a brief description of the technology solution to be presented in Poznan, including a short note on its climate change impact, and the coordinates for the individual/institution responsible.
