The World Coal Association (WCA) has recently become a member of the United Nations Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN).
The CTCN is the operational arm of the UNFCCC technology Mechanism and it is hosted and managed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in collaboration with United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and with the support of 11 Centres of Excellence located in developing and developed countries.
Over 130 members of the climate technology netwrork form a big community of stakeholders from the different sectors - non-governmental, private, public sector as well as research entities. Its members play a meaningful role in information sharing, capacity building and technical assistance in response to country requests.
WCA is looking forward to start working with CTCN, supporting developing countries to implement their NDC and Paris agreement mitigation commitments, in particular through the Global Platform for Accelerating Coal Efficiency (PACE) and high efficiency low emission coal technologies (HELE).
