  • Senior government leaders, the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) inaugurated a new five-year work program at COP27 today to support climate technology solutions in poor nations.

In order to hasten the adoption of crucially important novel climate technologies, the Technology Executive Committee (TEC) and the Climate Technology Center and Network (CTCN), two UNFCCC entities and the Technology Mechanism under the Paris Agreement, are cooperating. started a program for teamwork at work. A response to climate change is required.

UNEP Executive Director Inger Andersen said:

The Technical Mechanism’s new joint work program covers work from 2023 to 2027. It envisages specific joint activities to be carried out by the TEC and CTCN, including technology roadmaps, work on gender and technology, technology and NDCs and digitization, and areas of joint work. For both institutions, including the national innovation system, industry, water-energy-food relations.

His contributions to the IPCC Sixth Assessment Report (IPCC AR6) and Working Group III (IPCC WG III) on Climate Change Mitigation are enablers to accelerate climate change mitigation and promote effective adaptation solutions. as a spotlight on technology. The assessment also highlights that limiting global warming will require significant changes in key sectors and domains such as energy, cities, etc., with potential for emission reductions such as: Several key areas of high are pointed out. B.: Changes in urban/urban areas, industry, agriculture, forestry, and land use.

“Time is running out to achieve the main goals of the Paris Agreement. Limiting the increase in global average temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius and building resilience to climate change will require rapid scaling up of climate technologies and effective A revitalized technology mechanism is needed to unlock appropriate climate technologies anywhere in the world, and that is what this new work program seeks to achieve,” said the UNFCCC Executive Director.
