Abstract
The Conference of the Parties (COP), by decision 1/CP.16, decided to establish a Technology Mechanism, comprising a Technology Executive Committee and a Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN). The COP, by decision 2/CP.17, requested the CTCN, once it is operational, to elaborate its modalities and procedures based on its terms of reference and to report to the COP, through the subsidiary bodies at their thirty-eight sessions, with a view to making a decision on this matter at the nineteenth session of the COP. The COP, by decision 14/CP.18, decided that the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), as the leader of a consortium of partner institutions, be selected as the host of the Climate Technology Centre (CTC) for an initial term of five years, with possible renewal if so decided by COP 23. It also requested UNEP, as the host of the CTC, to convene and facilitate, preferably prior to the thirty-eighth sessions of the subsidiary bodies, the 1st meeting of the Advisory Board of the CTCN, established by the same decision, to determine its operational modalities and rules of procedure for consideration by the subsidiary bodies at their subsequent sessions. In response, UNEP has submitted the attached report (see the annex) dated 24 May 2013, which is reproduced here as submitted, without formal editing
