The U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change’s Technology Executive Committee agreed February 17 to set out a work plan later this year on the transfer of climate friendly technologies to developing countries. The committee will unveil its rolling work plan at the next meeting of the UNFCCC subsidiary bodies and ad hoc working groups May 14-25 in Bonn. The technology mechanism seeks to help developing countries hasten and increase their use of environmentally friendly energy production and distribution, transport, industrial production, and other activities through the use of new technologies from rich nations.
