System Transformation through Climate Technology Transfer

As a member of the CTCN Climate Technology Center & Network, OIKO has been invited to the annual CTCN Latin America and the Caribbean NDE Forum. The event was held from October 24 to 27 as part of Latin America and the Caribbean Climate Week 2023 in Panama City.

This Forum brings together Government representatives, CTCN technical Advisory Board and other country stakeholders, in a platform for networking, sharing experiences, and forging new collaborations.

This year the Forum’s primary focus revolved around the recently introduced CTCN’s 3rd Programme of Work (2023-2027). This program is designed to amplify transformational impacts and upscale key service areas through the utilization of two proven technologies: the National System of Innovation and Digitalization, actserving as enablers of systemic change.

CTCN’s priorities are centered around five major areas for system transformation:

· Water-Food-Energy Nexus
· Building and Infrastructure
· Sustainable Mobility
· Energy Systems
· Business and Industry

As part of the program, our specialist Veronica Macku presented a climate technology solution for decarbonization of the dairy sector, that was implemented in one of our recent projects in Uruguay. We’re also pleased to share that our Technical Needs Assessment (TNA) project in Paraguay received recognition in the DNA’s report on ongoing CTCN initiatives in the country.

We’re deeply grateful to the CTCN team and to all the participants for the excellent organization of the event. It was a remarkable opportunity for networking and exchange of experience. We look forward to further cooperation with CTCN network in the development and transfer of climate technology to Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as across the globe.
