Governance and planning
Good governance and planning can enable a faster and more efficient transition to low-carbon societies and countries’ improved climate mitigation and adaptation capacities. The CTCN provides technical assistance to developing countries with a view to strengthen climate planning. Approaches such as planning adaptation activities together with communities, developing Environmental Information System’s that facilitate better basis for decision-making, and identifying countries’ technology needs are useful enablers. Below you will find related publications, partners, CTCN technical assistance, technologies and other information for exploring this topic further.

Updating of Georgia’s technology needs assessment (TNA) through development of technology road maps for prioritized technologiesType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Sectors:Cross-sectoral enabler:Approach:
Georgia is exposed to hydrometeorological hazards and natural disasters. Frequent natural disasters include landslides, floods, flash-flooding, mudflows, droughts, avalanches, heavy winds and storms. In recent years, the number of natural disasters has increased nearly three times and, in many cases, have been considered as catastrophic, causing fatalities and leading to significant economic losses.
Feasibility study and technological solutions for the upgrade into an integrated solid waste management systemType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:ReviewCountries:Cross-sectoral enabler:
Jordan is one of four most water scarce countries in the world. This scarcity impacts every aspect of life within the country and is its greatest challenge to economic growth and development. Climate change is acting as a threat multiplier aggravating existing water vulnerability and availability due to decreased precipitation and higher rates of evaporation, as a result of increased temperature. It is also anticipated to increase the intensity of droughts in the country and the occurrence of flood events.
Strengthening safe drinking water supply in rural Myanmar based on the gravity-driven membrane (GDM) technologyType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:DesignCountries:Objective:Sectors:
Myanmar has substantial water resources; however, the resources are spatially and temporally unevenly distributed. Therefore, water‐related problems caused by different seasonal climate patterns vary depending on the geographic location. ‘Water resource management’ has been targeted as the main sector of concern for climate change adaptation in Myanmar. It was selected as the second priority level sector in the National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA).

There is consensus on the central role that private-sector actors are able to play to support the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC), as drivers of green growth, promoters of green supply chains, sources of investment in low-carbon and climate-resilient infrastructure, and as leaders of innovation in the development of clean technologies and the efficient use of resources.

Guatemala is ranked among the countries with the highest climate risk, given the impact that its territory has suffered from extreme meteorological events, which, associated with the socio-economic conditions of its population, have a high vulnerability to the effects of climate change. In this sense, the need arises to define public and government actions to reduce the effects/impacts of climate change, promoting in turn greater development and well-being of its population.
