Report on the workshop on technology needs assessments. Note by the secretariat.
A workshop on technology needs assessments (TNAs) was organized by the secretariat, in collaboration with the Global Environment Facility, the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Environment Programme and the Climate Technology Initiative, and held from 1 to 2 June 2011 in Bonn, Germany. The workshop provided an opportunity for participants to share good practices in and lessons learned from conducting TNAs with Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention, and to identify specific needs and practical actions that could assist Parties in implementing the results of their TNAs. It also provided an opportunity to exchange views with representatives of the private sector and the financial community on possible ways to enhance access to funding for the implementation of the results of TNAs, and to discuss possible roles of TNAs in the context of the implementation of the Technology Mechanism, established at the sixteenth session of the Conference of the Parties
