In response to a request by the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice at its twenty-fifth session, the secretariat, in collaboration with the Expert Group on Technology Transfer, the United Nations Environment Programme, the United Nations Development Programme and the Climate Technology Initiative organized a workshop on good practices in conducting technology needs assessments (TNAs). The workshop was held on 27â29 June 2007 in Bangkok, Thailand.
The workshop provided an opportunity for participants to share lessons learned and good practices in conducting TNAs which will serve as subsequent guidance for those Parties undertaking or updating their technology needs assessments. It also provided an opportunity to discuss ideas on possible further activities on good practices in carrying out TNAs and to exchange views with representatives from the private sector and the financial community on possible ways to enhance access to funding for the implementation of the results of TNAs
