Third synthesis report on technology needs identified by Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention

This report synthesizes the information contained in the technology needs assessment (TNA) reports of 31 Parties not included in Annex I to the Convention. It highlights the technology needs of those Parties to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions and facilitate adaptation to the adverse impacts of climate change. One of the key findings arising from this report is that the TNAs conducted by Parties led to the development of national technology action plans (TAPs) that recommend enabling frameworks to address identified barriers to the development and transfer of prioritized technologies. Those TAPs and, additionally, the project ideas prepared by Parties facilitated the identification of technology transfer projects. The Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice may wish to consider the information contained in this report and determine any further steps to support enhanced action on the development and transfer of technology.
