Technology, Markets and Investment for Low Carbon and Climate Resilient Development (TEMARIN)

Strengthening markets for climate technologies in Kenya and Uganda

The TEMARIN project is a three-year, Danida funded project covering the countries of Kenya and Uganda with the overall aim to support countries in accelerating the transfer, diffusion and uptake of specific climate technologies. The project focus is on strengthening domestic markets for climate technologies, removing bottlenecks for domestic firms operating in these markets and increasing cooperation among private actors, public actors and international actors to build global and national partnerships for upscaling implementation.

What do we want to achieve?

  1. Generate market knowledge and explain successful cases of market-led transfer and diffusion of climate technologies including small-scale irrigation, captive solar PV and ICT based agricultural extension services.
  2. Co-create actionable recommendations to strengthen support for domestic firms in gaining larger share of markets for solar PV.
  3. Provide a platform for partnership facilitation to increase technology transfer and diffusion in select climate mitigation and adaptation technologies.

Expected outcomes:

  • Better access to market information and data for business owners, investors and government actors on specific technologies and market segments increased understanding of contextual drivers and barriers as well as effective partnership models for market-led transfer, diffusion and uptake of specific climate technologies.
  • Increased understanding of the needs and requirements of domestic firms as well as bottlenecks inhibiting domestic firms from growing and upgrading in the markets in which they operate.
  • Aligned understanding among domestic firms, investors, government and other supporting actors of how to remove barriers and strengthen the supportive ecosystem for domestic firms.
  • New partnerships formed between sector-specific actors (local and/or global) to initiate or support implementation of specific climate technologies.
