– Pioneer in supporting market-based approaches (e.g., ESCOs) and innovative financial instruments
– Supported the development and implementation of energy efficiency appliances standards, buildings codes, renewable energy laws and regulations in dozens of developing countries and economies in transition
– More than 2.5 billion tons of CO2 avoided directly and indirectly from GEF projects

COP14 Poznan Strategic Program on Tech Transfer
Tech transfer window in GEF-4
– Support for technology needs assessments $9m approved to support up to 45 countries to prepare/update TNAs
– Support for technology transfer pilot projects $38m TT pilot projects to be approved by
Council in November
– Dissemination of successfully demonstrated technologies and know-how

Requested the GEF to consider long term implementation of a strategic program on TT
– Draft GEF-5 strategy featuring technology transfer as a key objective

Proposed GEF-5 Strategy
•    Promote the demonstration, deployment, and transfer of advanced low-carbon technologies
•    Promote market transformation for energy efficiency in industry and the building sector
•    Promote investment in renewable energy technologies
•    Promote energy efficient, low-carbon transport and urban systems
•    Conserve and enhance carbon stocks through sustainable management of LULUCF
•    Continue to support enabling activities and capacity building
