Model framework for technology transfer
UNCCD published a model framework for technology transfer. The framework explores options for the horizontal distribution of more mature technologies between countries to ensure availability and affordability where these technologies are most needed, while aiming to help new and innovative technologies move up the innovation chain. Vertical transfer helps promising new technologies out of the R&D and scientific space via a viable business model so that it can be deployed.
Accompanying this model, a report on options for the financing of land technology transfer is also made available. The paper analyzes the underlying issues and financing needs to increase the flow of technological solutions to address land-related issues in developing countries and provided financing options for advancing technological transfer.
