It also summarizes up-to-date estimations of additional financing needs to scale up technology transfer from various sources and gives a number of insights on barriers to financing technology transfer. The report provides information only on financing mitigation technologies; the work on financing technologies for adaptation will be presented in the final report to be completed by the thirtieth session of the subsidiary bodies
