CTI Capacity Building Seminar: Climate Technology and Energy Efficiency - the engine for economic growth and Innovation
The mission of the Climate Technology Initiative (CTI) is to bring countries together to foster international co-operation in the accelerated development and diffusion of climate-friendly and environmentally sound technologies and practices. The promotion of technology transfer under the Kyoto Protocol as incorporated in the Marrakech Accords is at the core of CTI's work. Ecologic supports the organisation of a seminar that is part of CTI. It is the 7th event of a series sponsored by the German Federal Environment Agency.
The 7th CTI Capacity Building Semniar takes place on 21-25 October 2006 in Leipzig, Germany.
It is the objective of the seminar to:
- discuss and develop concrete projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,
- identify the economic potential of climate change policies,
- promote understanding of the initial negotiations for a future climate change regime,
- facilitate the sharing of experiences and ideas between experts from the Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries, the former Soviet Union and Mongolia as well as selected OECD countries concerning the economic potential and benefits of climate change policies.
