Barbados will host a three-day Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) Training Workshop for National Designated Entities, beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, September 30, until Thursday, October 2, at Radisson Aquatica, Aquatic Gap, St. Michael.
Minister of the Environment and Drainage, Dr. Denis Lowe, will deliver the feature address at the opening ceremony at 9:00 a.m.
Delegates from Small Island Developing States are expected to be in attendance at the training workshop, which will cover areas including the role and services offered by the CTCN.
The CTCN is the operational arm of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change Technology Mechanism and consists of the Climate Technology Centre. It promotes the accelerated transfer of environmentally-sound technologies for low carbon and climate resilient development at the request of developing countries.
It also provides technology solutions, capacity building and advice on policy, legal and regulatory frameworks, tailored to the needs of individual countries. National Designated Entities are the bodies responsible for managing technology-related requests to the CTCN.
