What is the link between and the TNA Handbook?


The Handbook for Conducting Technology Needs Assessment for Climate Change (TNA handbook) has been prepared by UNDP and the UNFCCC Secretariat.

The handbook provides step-wise guidance for national stakeholder teams in developing countries to:

  1. Identify development priorities of the country,
  2. Identify strategic sectors which contribute to meeting development priorities and to climate change mitigation and/or adaptation,
  3. Identify technologies for climate change mitigation and adaptation in these strategic sectors,
  4. Increase familiarity with these technologies,
  5. Prioritise technologies with the help of multi-criteria decision analysis,
  6. Identify activities to accelerate the development and transfer of prioritised technologies within the country.

ClimateTechWiki has been developed as a supporting tool for steps 3, 4 and 5.
