Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals: exploring linkages with the Technology Needs Assessments

This briefing note discusses key linkages between the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UNFCCC-mandated Technology Needs Assessments (TNAs), and the role of technology per se in achieving sustainable development. Reflecting on many years of experience in conducting TNAs, the brief concludes with some recommendations on how to sharpen the linkages between country-driven efforts to achieve climate-related SDGs, including how to link TNAs to specific SDG targets and indicators. In doing so, the brief aims to elaborate on the role and importance of TNAs in both strategic and operational terms, and on how nationally driven technology action plans can be implemented and make an impact.
