The vision of the CTCN is to promote accelerated, diversified and scaled-up transfer of environmentally sound technologies for climate change mitigation and adaptation in developing countries, in line with their sustainable development priorities. Climate technologies include equipment, techniques, practical knowledge and skills needed for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and adapting to climate change.
The CTCN facilitates the transfer of these technologies through three core services: providing technical assistance to developing countries to enhance transfer of climate technologies; providing and sharing information and knowledge on climate technologies; and fostering collaboration and networking of various stakeholders on climate technologies.
Through its services, the CTCN aims to address barriers that hinder the development and transfer of climate technologies, thereby becoming a catalytic force in creating an enabling environment for reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and climate vulnerability, improved local innovation capacities and increased investment in climate technology projects.

Through its strategic partnership with the CTCN, DNV GL will support CTCN operations by offering its extensive experience in technology transfer, knowledge management and capacity building. DNV GL will also facilitate the engagement of the private sector in the Centre’s network in order to stimulate technology cooperation among developed and developing countries.
