Technology Needs Adaptation Report

As part of the measures to mitigate the adverse effects of climate change, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), calls for all practicable steps to be taken to promote, facilitate and finance, as appropriate, the transfer of, or access to, environmentally sound technologies and know-how to developing countries to enable them to implement the provisions of the convention. This need to forge scientific and technological breakthroughs is more pronounced in countries that are considered very vulnerable to the adverse effects of climate change, Lesotho being one of such cases.

Although the country has embarked on the identification, assessment and development of technologies that promote sustainable development without contributing significantly to greenhouse gas emissions, the barriers to the transfer of these environmentally sound technologies (ESTs) has been found to be insurmountable in some sectors of the economy.
