As a consortium partner of the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) is an implementer in two technical assistance initiatives on climate change in Africa and Latin America. These include the design of an environmental information system for addressing climate change challenges in Cote d’Ivoire and the design of a biodiversity monitoring network in the context of climate change in Chile.
ICRAF also contributes various materials including good practices and tools related to agroforestry and climate change to CTCN’s Knowledge Management platform. In addition, ICRAF builds the capacities of least developing countries through webinars, training materials and support in developing requests to the CTCN.
CTCN promotes the accelerated development and transfer of climate technologies at the request of developing countries for energy-efficient, low-carbon and climate-resilient development. The CTCN is the operational arm of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Technology Mechanism and is mandated to:
- Manage requests for technical assistance from developing countries and delivering responses
- Foster collaboration and access to information and knowledge to accelerate technology transfer
- Strengthen networks, partnerships and capacity building for climate technology transfer
CTCN is hosted by UNEP in collaboration with the UNIDO and supported by 11 partner institutions, including ICRAF that have expertise in climate technologies.
