ClimateTechWiki has been created to offer up-to-date and updatable information about technologies for mitigation and adaptation. It is a supporting tool for the Handbook for Conducting Technology Needs Assessment for Climate Change, developed by UNDP and the UNFCCC Secretariat. It also addresses a broader audience of practitioners, project developers, and policy makers interested in technologies for climate change mitigation and adaptation.
ClimateTechWiki aims at offering technology descriptions in a structured way with fixed headings so that technologies can be compared and assessed easily. Technology descriptions provide information on how a technology works, on its feasibility in different contexts, on market status and market potential, contribution to socio-economic development and environmental protection and on costs.
