UNEP’s Climate Technology Centre and DNV GL announce a strategic partnership that aims to accelerate global development, transfer and deployment of climate change mitigation and adaptation technologies to developing countries.

The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and DNV GL announce a new strategic partnership, designed to assist the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), hosted by UNEP, to improve access to climate change mitigation and adaptation technologies in developing countries. The Norwegian Government will support the CTCN with NOK 60 mill. in the period 2013-2015.

The partnership announcement is being made during a meeting between UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner and the Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Børge Brende together with the CTCN Director, Jukka Uosukainen, and DNV GL Chief Sustainability Officer, Bjørn K. Haugland.

“Replacing current technologies with cleaner, low-carbon alternatives is a vital part of tackling the causes and effects of climate change. The strategic partnership between CTCN and DNV GL will play a vital role in accelerating the use of new technologies in improving the lives and livelihoods of millions of people in developing countries who are dealing with the impacts of climate change on a daily basis," says Mr. Steiner.

Through the partnership, DNV GL will support CTCN operations by utilizing its extensive experience in technology transfer, knowledge management and capacity building. DNV GL will also facilitate the engagement of the private sector in the Centre’s Network in order to stimulate technology cooperation among developed and developing countries. The Network will create a space for exchange and technical collaboration with developing countries on thematic areas such as agriculture, energy, forestry, industry, and water.
