Titre : Moving Climate Innovation into the 21st Century : Emerging Lessons from other Sectors and Options for a New Climate Innovation Initiative

Région : Global

Projet de recherche pour le Développement :

DFID Programme : Miscellaneous (Environment)

Organismes de mise en œuvre  : Clean Energy Group

Durée : 05-10-2010 / 15-03-2011

Objectifs  : This research aims to identify the lessons and best practices from the agriculture, health and ICT sectors that can be applied to the climate technology sector to create a global climate innovation initiative.

Project Conclusions
The most surprising and provocative conclusion is that developing countries will be a new source of technology innovation, challenging the conventional wisdom that climate solutions will only come from massive funding for ’North to South’ technology transfer.
The key messages from the report are : •Climate recovery will require new, much cheaper technologies that serve the needs of the poor - this will require innovation at all points on the technology value chain from technological improvements, to business models and financing schemes ; •Developing countries must be considered partners in any technology innovation initiative rather than passive recipients of transferred technology and capacity building - both because developing countries have called for national ownership and priority setting, and because - •Innovation theory and practical experience show that many of the breakthroughs for low carbon technologies are likely to come from the developing world to be transferred to the West.

Total Cost to DFID : £96,000
