This flyer stresses that achieving the 2°C climate target will require technological innovation and the rapid and widespread transfer of environmentally‐sound technologies for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and for adapting to the inevitable impacts of climate change. Aware of this, the objective of the UN system is to significantly increase the capacity of developing countries to innovate and to transfer, adapt and disseminate environmentally sound technologies and standards to support a transition to green economy in the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication.
