Technology Needs Assessment and Technology Action Plans for Climate Change Mitigation

Passed in 2014
The Climate Change Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) Plans for Mitigation identify environmentally sound technologies that have synergy between reducing the impact of climate change and the rate of GHG emissions in Sri Lanka within the national development objectives. The priority sectors identified for mitigation are Energy, Transport and Industry, the sectors with high GHG emission reduction potentials.

The objectives of the TNA are: 1) to define priority sectors for which technologies are needed to sustain national development projects and programmes in light of the potential impacts of climate change; 2) to identify suitable technologies that contribute to climate change adaptation in the relevant sectors; 3) to prioritise the identified technologies, their cost‐effectiveness and barriers to implementation; 4) to identify the barriers and develop an enabling framework for the development and diffusion of prioritized technologies for relevant sectors; 5) to develop technology action plans and project ideas for priority technologies for relevant sectors to mobilize resources for implementation of the programme.
