This updated handbook by the United Nations Development Programme provides hands-on guidance for identifying the most effective technology options for poverty reduction and climate change mitigation and adaptation. By drawing on decades of experience and inputs from leading experts and practitioners, it brings novel insights for carrying out needs assessments and creating actionable plans as part of national climate change strategies. This updated Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) Handbook is designed to assist countries in making informed decisions in their technology choices. It also provides processes and methodologies for uncovering gaps in enabling frameworks and capacities and for formulating a national action plan to overcome them, as part of overall climate change strategies and plans such as NAMAs and NAPAs. The Handbook builds on and expands the scope of the first Handbook, entitled “Conducting Technology Needs Assessment for Climate Change” that was published in 2004 and prepared by United Nations Development Programme. The first Handbook was designed to provide practical guidance on how to conduct a technology needs assessment in developing countries.
