Global PPP Programme II

Private investment and climate-friendly technologies are crucial for building a climate-friendly economy in emerging and developing countries. Therefore, the Climate Partnership Programme mobilised the private sector in developing and emerging economies and offered opportunities for private investments in climate-friendly development of the partner countries. The programme focused 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 supported projects of private companies that contributed to the country’s development. Private sector projects may have - for example - demonstrated the use of climate-friendly technologies, supported the introduction and dissemination of innovative climate mitigation technologies or adapted proven technologies for the mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions to the specific conditions of the target countries.
