  • CTCN Monitoring & Evaluation System

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    This document presents the Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) system of the Climate Technology Centre & Network (CTCN) completed in 2020. It includes the Theory of Change and the Performance Measurement Framework of the CTCN, both of which are in alignment with reporting on the implementation of the Technology Framework under Article 10, paragraph 4, of the Paris Agreement under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).

  • Monitoring of invasive species

    Type: 
    Technology
    Objective:

    Biodiversity monitoring is to observe and check the changes in the status and demographics of resources, species, habitats, or ecological communities. Monitoring provides a record to track trends in biodiversity over time and is carried out to reinforce knowledge of the ecological system, to raise public and political awareness of environmental issues and stimulate action through the reporting of these trends. A range of processes exert pressures on biodiversity.

  • Soil moisture monitoring

    Type: 
    Technology
    Objective:

    Soil moisture monitoring is critical for managing water resources in an efficient manner. This applies to both irrigated and rainfed cropping systems. Water is increasingly becoming the most limiting resource needed to meet the food and fiber needs of a growing and more affluent population. Soil moisture monitoring can e.g. be used as a tool to assist irrigation scheduling. Irrigation management gives better crops, using fewer inputs, which increases profitability. Soil moisture sensors help with irrigation decisions.

  • COP25. Building countries capacity on circular economy as a medium to tackle climate change: initiatives in Latin America & the Caribbean and international best practises

    Type: 
    Event
    Date:

    Circular economy (CE) seeks to replace the current linear economic model with a circular model, regenerative in nature, to enable the harnessing and efficient use (and reuse) of resources. A circular system allows the decoupling of economic growth from the utilisation of natural resources, promoting the creation of new businesses as well as a change in the existing production processes, with an economic potential of up to US $4.5 trillion, and generating up to 6 million new jobs by 2030 worldwide.
