The ACTC supports sub-Saharan African countries in adopting environmentally sound technologies for Adaptation and Mitigation.
The Centre supports sub-Saharan African countries to deploy low-carbon and climate resilient technologies. See our projects:
ACTC-funded Research Projects now complete
Nine research projects funded by the ACTC have been successfully completed and have generated unique insights of the factors affecting the adoption of low-carbon technologies in Africa.
Solar Energy for Water in rural and peri-urban areas
The ACTC provides Technical Assistance to the Government of Mauritania, Ministry of Water and Sanitation, to design a strategy to use solar energy for providing safe drinking water to rural and peri-rural populations.
Energy Efficiency in buildings
The ACTC provides support to the Energy Commission of Ghana to improve Energy Efficiency in public and commercial buildings. The Project encompasses both research and development.
SEforALL Action Agenda and Investment Prospectus
The ACTC provided technical assistance to the Government of Angola, Ministry of Energy and Water to develop Action Agenda and Investment Prospectus validated on August 26, 2016 in Luanda.
The African Climate Technology Centre (ACTC) supports sub-Saharan African (SSA) member countries in scaling-up the deployment of low-carbon and climate resilient technologies for climate change Mitigation and Adaptation by:
- Enhancing networking and knowledge dissemination with respect to climate technology transfer and financing;
- Enabling the scaling-up of technology transfer through policy, institutional and organizational reforms of the country and regional enabling environments; and
- Integrating climate change technologies into investment programs and projects.
The ACTC is a GEF Project executed by the AfDB with the objective of supporting SSA member countries in scaling-up the deployment of low-carbon and climate resilient technologies for climate change Adaptation and Mitigation.
The Project aims at reinforcing the transfer of technologies, knowledge and capacity to increase the investments in climate change technologies in the water and energy sector, respectively for adaptation and mitigation.
The Project makes use of external consulting services and the AfDB's staff and resources to provide Technical Assistance, Knowledge products and Networking activities.
