In order to accelerate the introduction of innovative climate change actions, the Climate Finance Center of the Kyrgyz Republic was appointed as the National Designated Authority of the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) of the United Nation.
Currently adaptation to changing climate change is one of the key priorities in the world. A number of initiatives are being implemented in the Kyrgyz Republic aimed at mitigating impacts and adapting to climate change within various international programs and projects.
However, close cooperation is essential for introduction of climate technology in the national agenda on sustainable development and support on implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions. In this context the UN Climate Technology Center & Network (CTCN) is considered as a body which is strengthening policy and capacity through innovative solutions to prevent the climate change problems, reduce natural risk and develop resource-saving tools in the energy and agricultural sectors.
As an official CTCN member, the Kyrgyz Republic through its National Designated Authority can engage climate technology experts from the CTCN global network to develop and deliver customized solutions tailored to country needs. CTCN does not provide direct funding to countries, but rather supports the provision of technical assistance by climate technology experts in specific sectors of the economy.
About the Centre:
Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) promotes the transfer of climate technology for more energy-efficient, low- carbon and climate-resilient development of countries. As part of the UNFCCC Technology Mechanism, the Centre is coordinated by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in cooperation with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and has over 150 partners worldwide. The Centre draws on the expertise of these institutions to provide technical assistance and capacity building at the request of developing countries.
