Proposal on innovative mechanism for development and transfer of environmentally sound technologies

Published by: Renmin University of China


The innovation and diffusion of environmentally sound technologies (ESTs) is critical to meet the challenges of climate change. However, there are great technology gaps between developed and developing countries. The timely promotion of the development and transfer of ESTs will help to not only more rapidly narrow the technology gap but also achieve significant global climate benefits.

This proposal contains a technology needs assessment, identifies barriers to technology development and transfer and presents a framework of the international mechanism for the development and transfer of ESTs.
