Capacity Building in Climate Change Mitigation with Locally Owned Technology and Systems

Mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change continues to have high priority under the provisions of the UNFCCC and its Kyoto protocol, as climate change could endanger the future well-being of humans, ecosystems and economic progress in all regions. All countries, taking into account their common but differentiated responsibilities, should continue to advance the implementation of their commitments under the Convention to address climate change. Technology transfer should be strengthened as much as possible via means such as concrete projects and capacity-building in all relevant sectors. With this in mind, the project focused on capacity building in climate change mitigation with locally owned technology.
