Last week the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism participated in the 2020 conference of the Global Sustainable Technology & Innovation Community (G-STIC).

On 27 October, the Technology Executive Committee (TEC) hosted a deep-dive session on “Innovative approaches for climate adaptation technologies”, with speakers from the Stockholm Environment Institute, Univers-Sel, the World Resources Institute, Myanmar’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation and IUCN. The event highlighted the need for innovative, gender-responsive and participatory approaches that empower communities and contribute to a green and inclusive recovery.

On 28 October, the Adaptation Fund and the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) hosted a webinar on the new Adaptation Fund Climate Innovation Accelerator, which will be executed by CTCN. In addition to these institutions, speakers from the UNDP and Cambodia’s Ministry of Environment discussed adaptation innovation in vulnerable countries.

I was pleased to present the TEC’s recent publication on ‘Innovative Approaches to Accelerating and Scaling up Climate Technology Implementation’.
