Despite commitments regarding the “Development and Transfer of Technology” under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change set forth fifteen years ago, developed countries have failed to comply.

How to construct mechanisms (institutional, financial, managerial, etc.) that would permit an efficient, effective, and sustainable “Development and Transfer of Technology” toward developing countries? How to get past barriers regarding the enforcement of intellectual and other forms of property? What means are necessary for reasserting the specific capacities and technologies of developing countries? Why does Copenhagen fail to represent advances in this area?

The objective of this group is to develop a proposal for guaranteeing the “Development and Transfer of Technology” toward developing countries as established under the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
