  1. GOOD PRACTICES FOR TECHNOLOGY NEEDS ASSESSMENTS UNFCCC workshop 27-29 June 2007 Bangkok, Thailand R Nayamuth Mauritius

  2. Contents • Implementation of TNA findings • Cross cutting issues • Stakeholder consultations • Barrier analysis • Technology information • Public awareness • Capacity building • Research and Development • Information sharing and networking

  3. CONTENTS • Implementation of TNA findings • Cross cutting issues

  4. IMPLEMENTATION • Need to look into next steps • Translating TNA results into applications • Why? • Meet national objectives to combat CC • Meet UNFCCC objective of implementing technology transfer framework and Article 2

  5. IMPLEMENTATION • Flowchart for implementation Securing resources Development of Implementation strategies Integration with existing development plans Ongoing review and refinement of action plans Implementation of technology transfer actions Preparation of technology transfer

  6. SECURING RESOURCES • May be of Financial, Technical and Human nature Financial Options 1. Organize work session with potential funders • Local private sector/national companies • Government/regional/local authorities • Donor organizations • International and local banks 2. Resort to CTI-PFAN (Private Financial Assistance Network)

  7. STRATEGIES • Identify barriers and constraints and measures to remove them • Identify group of stakeholders concerned • Discuss and agree on role of stakeholders or institutions to remove barriers • Resort to PFAN to bridge the gap

  8. INTEGRATION WITH PLANS / PROGRAMS • Vital to integrate with international and national plans and policies for maximum effectiveness • Guarantee back up from government • Avoid duplication (Synergy between MEAs) • Ensure Win – Win situation (both mitigation and adaptation)

  9. PREPARATION TT PLAN • Depends on technology (Hard or Soft and resources required) • As projects for funding or set of actions • Involve appropriate institutions – multidisciplinary team • Resort to PFAN when preparing projects for funding

  10. IMPLEMENTATION TRANSFER ACTIONS • Effective implementation of projects or activities identified for TT ONGOING REVIEW AND REFINEMENT OF ACTIONS • Monitoring committee to evaluate progress, identify problems and solve them • Continuous involvement of stakeholders • Set clear timeframe, milestones, indicators and responsibilities

  11. PFAN – FLOW CHART Initial Project Concept Proposal TNAs To PFAN for initial screening PFAN Role for Private Sector? Yes Further Development Alternate Sources No Support & Advice from PFAN Source Financing Fully Developed Project Fund Project Post on TT:CLEAR Adopted from presentation of P Storey SB 26

  12. STAKEHOLDER CONSULTATION Possible involvement cycle for TNA process • Identify stakeholder groups and roles • Consult key agencies • Set up core group and lead agency • Identify wider groups and define clear objectives at an early stage • Keep involvement ongoing at all stages • Organize effective communication and outreach with stakeholders

  13. BARRIER ANALYSIS Essential to identify and correct for all steps of TNA process • Identify barriers during each step by involving widest group of stakeholders • Analyze barriers and look for measures to remove them • Barriers may be institutional, policy, financial, technical, human, political

  14. TECHNOLOGY INFORMATION Prerequisite for successful assessment • Collect information extensively on every technology • Disseminate information to concerned stakeholders

  15. PUBLIC AWARENESS Vital especially for recipients and end-users • Identify needs along technology transfer channel • Organize awareness campaigns for each stakeholder group identified

  16. CAPACITY BUILDING Inadequate capacity have proved to be responsible for failures in technology transfer • Identify needs explicitly for the different steps of TNA exercise • Revise during TT cycle to enhance smooth transfer • Propose measures to address CB notably regarding implementation of selected technologies individually

  17. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT Important component for transfer as technologies may need to be modified for successful transfer • Identify R&D needs for each technology prioritized • Work out a R&D program • Submit to relevant authorities for action • Promote participatory R&D to enhance flow of technology

  18. INFORMATION SHARING/NETWORKING Inadequate information may be a serious constraint to technology transfer • Analyze existing information sharing systems and networks • Identify gaps and constraints to effective information sharing • Propose measures to enhance access to, and sharing of, information
