Using “adaptation technologies” to improve policy and planning at national level
Organizer: Practical Action / IIED *this session is part of the Development & Climate Days
|This session is part of the Development & Climate Days.This session will look at how community-based innovation and implementation of ‘adaptation technologies’ could improve the impact of national policy and planning. The discussion will include how the ‘business case’ is built for government to invest in certain adaptation technologies and/or create the enabling environment for uptake of other adaptation technologies – e.g. smart subsidies, PPPs and incentives. It will also explore the fact that uptake requires technologies to be viable, so evidence and examples of relevant ‘business models’ are also needed.
