Technical Committee of the ESCWA Technology Centre, 7th Meeting
Since its establishment in 2010, ESCWA Technology Centre has been assisting the member countries to harness science and technology for enhancing their socio-economic development and establishing their national technology development and transfer systems. In support of addressing the challenges of the Agenda 2030 Sustainable Development which was launched in late 2015, ETC developed a responsive work plan targeted towards assisting the member countries in implementing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The specific objectives of the meeting are:
- To deliberate and share experience on innovative green technologies that are considered imperative to promote sustainable development;
- To discuss the needed appropriate technologies for member countries that could assist in achieving their national development plans; and
- To guide ETC in prioritizing its focus areas in 2019 – 2020 on technology transfer and adaptation for achieving the agenda 2030 and its goals.
