DECEMBER 2, 2019 | 18:30 - 20:00 | Room 1, Hall 4
At this COP 25 side event, the panelists will share plans and views on how to support technology development and transfer through implementation of the Technology Framework and address the transformational changes envisioned in the Paris Agreement. Participating speakers include: the Chair of the Technology Executive Committee, the chair of the Advisory Board of the Climate Technology Centre and Network, the Director of the Climate Technology Center and Network, and key technology practitioners. More information below.
The Technology Framework, adopted by decision 15/CMA.1 in December 2018 at the Katowice climate change conference, provides overarching guidance to the Technology Mechanism in promoting and facilitating enhanced action on technology development and transfer in support to the implementation of the Paris Agreement on five key themes: innovation, implementation, enabling environment and capacity-building, communication and stakeholder engagement, support.
The TEC and the CTCN promptly responded to decision 15/CMA.1 and incorporated the guidance contained in the technology framework in their respective workplan and programme of work for 2019-2022. The two bodies also identified opportunities for collaboration in the following areas: research, development and demonstration, uptake of existing technologies, long-term technological transformation; technology needs assessment; monitoring and evaluation of impacts; and communication and outreach.
Participants to the side event will hear about TEC and CTCN's planned activities for 2019-2022 to support technology development and transfer and address the transformational changes envisioned in the Paris Agreement, including plans for enhancing their stakeholder engagement. Participants will also have the opportunity to reflect on and provide feedback to the current and future work of the TEC and CTCN.
