Langer Eugen, Bonn, Germany, 25 March 2013
By decision 1/CP.16 the Technology Executive Committee (TEC) has the function to catalyse the development and use of technology road maps (TRMs) or action plans at the international, regional and national levels through cooperation between relevant stakeholders, particularly governments and relevant organizations or bodies, including the development of best practice guidelines as facilitative tools for action on mitigation and adaptation.
As part of its follow-up activities on technology roadmaps, the TEC agreed to organize an expert meeting with a focus on technology roadmaps in the area of adaptation to climate change.
The overall objective of the expert meeting is to share experiences of developing and using TRMs between different stakeholders and the TEC, and to seek ideas on the potential roles the TEC or other relevant bodies or processes under the UNFCCC could play to catalyse the development and use of these roadmaps to stimulate action on mitigation and adaptation to climate change at the national, regional and international levels.
More specifically, the expert meeting aims to:
Mr. Marc Londo, Senior Manager, Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN);
Possible linkages between TRMs and other planning tools under the Convention
Mr. Gabriel Blanco, Chair of the TEC;
Ms. Cecilia Tam, Unit Head, Energy Demand Technologies, International Energy Agency (IEA);
