Partnerships in the Energy, Climate, and Technology Branch
UNEP’s Energy, Climate, and Technology Branch works with a wide range of committed partners and donors. Partnerships are a key enabler for combatting climate change and foster sustainable development and are firmly embedded in the way UNEP's Energy, Climate, and Technology Branch works at global, regional and national level. By joining forces with other players, the Energy, Climate, and Technology Branch can leverage additional resources, expertise and technical know-how to help developing countries in their effort to achieve sustainable development.
With whom we partner?
The Energy, Climate, and Technology Branch supports developing countries to improve energy efficiency and increase the use of renewable energy as part of their effort to achieve low-carbon and climate resilient development pathways. It does so by guiding developing countries on the right policy, technology and investment choices to help them reduce their emissions from the use of energy and drive sustainable development. To deliver our results in these areas, we work in close collaboration with national and local governments, the wider UN family, other international and regional organisations, international financial institutions, the private sector, civil society organisations, academic entities and foundations. The resources, expertise and know-how contributed to achieve our results make all the difference.
