Effective global response to climate change requires the development and transfer of environmentally sound technologies between and within countries, both for adapting to climate change as well as for mitigating the effects of greenhouse gas emissions. This Special Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) provides a state-of-the-art overview of how to achieve and enhance this transfer. 185 eminent experts from around the world provide accurate, unbiased policy-relevant information on technology transfer, such as capacity building, the promotion of en enabling environment, and mechanisms for technology transfer from developed to developing countries. The transfer of both hardware as well as software (knowledge) is discussed, and the importance of the involvement of various stakeholders is emphasized. The report was written in response to the request of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA) of the United Nations Framwork Convention on Climate Change.
