ISAP2017 KRC/UNU-IAS Thematic track “Innovative approaches to stimulate low carbon technology transfer”

Event: ISAP 2017
Date: 26th July, 2017 (Pacifico Yokohama)
Conference Proceeding

The dissemination of low carbon technologies (LCTs) will continue to play a crucial role to meeting the targets under the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Agenda. Yet, despite a wide range of activities and initiatives to promote the dissemination of LCTs, finding the missing links between the various facets of effective technology dissemination model remains elusive.

IGES has undertaken a stakeholders’ matchmaking model as an innovative model to promote LCTs dissemination. This is the proceeding of the session which aims to share the findings so far from the activities conducted in India, Thailand and Vietnam to promote the dissemination of Japanese LCTs in these countries. It also gathers experts and practitioners from developed and developing countries, working across research institutes, government and the private sector to solicit their views on those findings in particular and on how to make the stakeholders’ matchmaking model more operational and effective to promote the dissemination of LCTs in general.

The date/time of the session will also mark the open to the public of a website initiated by IGES-TERI to facilitate and accelerate the Japan-India stakeholders’matchmaking in order to promote Japanese LCTs in India.
