About this session
The session focuses on how the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism can be strengthened to promote the building of national systems of innovation (NSIs) in developing countries. NSIs are essential to fostering the development and transfer of technology for both climate change adaptation and mitigation. Speakers will examine what policies, institutional arrangements, capabilities and interventions the Technology Mechanism can promote to support NSI-building. The panellists will draw from research undertaken in a range of developing countries, focussing especially on Africa but with reference to developing Asia and Latin America, to provide practical recommendations on ways forward.
Speakers: Dr Rob Byrne (STEPS Centre/SPRU, University of Sussex), Dr Cosmas Ochieng (ACTS), Dr Heleen de Coninck (Radboud University), Jonah Osore (Kenya Office of the Deputy President), Adrian Ely (STEPS Centre/SPRU, University of Sussex).
