About the Climate Technology Program
The Climate Technology Program (CTP), housed at infoDev, empowers developing countries to proactively and profitably adapt, develop, and deploy climate-smart technologies and business models. The CTP is creating a global network of Climate Innovation Centers (CICs) that provide a country-driven approach to addressing climate change and fostering green growth. The CICs are designed as locally owned and run institutions that provide a suite of services and venture financing that address the specific needs of local climate technology entrepreneurs.
At the global level, the CTP is providing linkages between CICs by facilitating market entry, access to information, and financing for the private sector, while also offering important tools for policy makers to measure and improve domestic climate innovation activities. Currently, the program is establishing CICs in eight countries: Kenya, the Caribbean, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Morocco, South Africa and Vietnam.
