The Conference of the Parties (COP), by its decision 1/CP.16, requested the Technology Executive Committee (TEC), as one of its functions, to catalyse the development and use of technology roadmaps 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.
The COP, by its decision 4/CP.17, adopted the following modalities for the TEC in carrying out the function related to catalyse the development and use of technology road maps or action plans:
(a) Promoting and collaborating with relevant organizations, resources permitting, in organizing workshops and forums to increase the opportunities for sharing experience with experts in developing and implementing technology road maps and action plans as well as other technology-related activities;
(b) Making recommendations on best practices and relevant tools to develop technology road maps and action plans;
(c) Establishing an inventory of technology road maps and action plans;
(d) Making recommendations on concrete actions, such as an international process for the development of technology road maps and action plans as well as support required to enhance the development of these items, and in particular capacity-building programmes that may be appropriate.
The TEC, in its rolling workplan for 2012-2013, included the preparation of an inventory of existing technology road maps as one of the tasks to be completed by the end of 2012 and also the review of the inventory of technology road maps to be carried out in 2013.
To facilitate the development of the inventory of existing technology road maps and action plans, the TEC, at its third meeting, agreed to call for inputs from relevant organizations on this matter. Interested organizations are invited to provide their inputs, including their final products of technology road maps and action plans as well as their experiences and lessons learned from developing and using technology road maps and actions plans to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The call for inputs will be open from 18 June - 31 July 2012 (24:00 GMT). The inputs from this call will be considered at the fourth meeting of the TEC.
