This manual is designed to assist participating countries to carry out Technology Needs Assessments (TNA) in the building sector. Based on the TNA, a Technology Action Plan (TAP) can be developed to identify barriers to the acquisition, deployment and diffusion of priority technologies. Practical actions can then be determined to overcome these barriers, in order to realise the building sector’s mitigation potential. The guidebook’s primary audience group consists of national TNA teams, which comprise a broad range of stakeholders from government institutions, NGOs and the private sector, including professionals from the building industry. It is intended to be a source of information and technical knowledge on climate change mitigation in the building sector for these stakeholders, especially those in countries and regions, where accessibility of such information is limited.
