UNFCCC Secretariat Publishes Technology Transfer Report

© UNFCCC26 May 2009: The UNFCCC Secretariat has published the report by the Chair of the Expert Group on Technology Transfer containing recommendations on future financing options for enhancing the development, deployment, diffusion and transfer of technologies under the Convention, for consideration by the subsidiary bodies at their thirtieth sessions (FCCC/SB/2009/2).

The report presents three indicative financing options for enhancing the development and transfer of technologies under the Convention, namely: the enhancement of existing and emerging technology financing arrangements; a decentralized or centralized comprehensive new international technology financing scheme; and limited new technology financing and coordination arrangements with sectoral activities. The options represent the range of possible options rather than describe actual and preferred alternatives. An executive summary of the report is also provided (FCCC/SB/2009/2/Summary).
