This document was prepared in response to the mandate from the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice, at its forty-fourth session, to prepare a mapping of climate technology development and transfer activities and initiatives under and outside the Convention relevant to the implementation of the Paris Agreement. The mapping includes activities and initiatives of relevant bodies and mechanisms under the Convention or receiving guidance from the Conference of the Parties, United Nations organizations and agencies, other multilateral organizations, bilateral and philanthropic initiatives, and research and development as well as innovation initiatives. It draws on activities and initiatives on which information is publicly available, including communications from Parties to the Convention and the reports of the Technology Executive Committee and the Climate Technology Centre and Network and the operating entities of the Financial Mechanism. Where available, information from those sources was backed up by relevant publications pertaining to mapping and climate technology development and transfer.
The identified activities and initiatives are grouped according to the institutions and entities that host or operate them and mapped across sectors, geography, activities and stages in the technology cycle, provided such information was available. The mapping reveals certain patterns in the types of activities and technologies and the types of initiatives that support them. It also identifies evolutions and gaps and other relevant issues that may be useful for the purpose of advancing the work of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice on the elaboration of the technology framework.
