Private investment and climate-friendly technologies are crucial for building a climate-friendly economy in emerging and developing countries. Therefore, the Climate Partnership Programme mobilises the private sector in developing and emerging economies and offers opportunities for private investments in climate-friendly development of the partner countries. The programme focuses on promoting the transfer of climate-friendly technologies, including related knowledge, and on developing resources and skills for the use of climate-friendly technologies by local partners. To this end, the programme supports projects of private companies that can contribute to the country’s development. Private sector projects may - for example - demonstrate the use of climate-friendly technologies, support the introduction and dissemination of innovative climate mitigation technologies or adapt proven technologies for the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions to the specific conditions of the target countries.
