  • GIST joins the UNFCCC Climate Technology Centre and Network



    On August 10, 2016, the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) under the leadership of President Seung Hyeon Moon has become the 200th member of the Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN), which is the operational arm of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Technology Mechanism, hosted by the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) and the UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO). The CTNC promotes the accelerated transfer of environmentally sound technologies for low carbon and climate resilient development at the request of developing countries.


    CTCN is an international organization established by the 16th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 16) held in December 2010 to promote the development and transfer technology in developing countries. One benefit for CTCM members is that they are eligible to bid for CTCN technical assistance work which is provided at the request of developing countries.


    Regarding GIST's membership, CTCN Director Jukka Uosukainen said, "Through our Network, we bring together a diverse global community of climate technology decision makers, suppliers and financiers to identify barriers to technology transfer, exchange technology experience, and provide technical assistance and capacity building to developing countries."


    Director Junha Kim of the GIST International Environmental Institute said, "Being accepted for membership by the CTCN means that GIST is an internationally recognized leader in developing environmental technology and in providing technical support to developing countries with regards to climate change. We will respond to climate change by developing new technologies and new businesses both domestically and internationally by working closely within CTCN."
