Timeline Events / OECD: Achieving the Successful Transfer of Environmentally Sound Technologies

The paper states that in order to successfully transfer environmentally sound technologies, much has to be done both by the developed and developing countries. For example, the paper suggests that there has to be a transfer of know-how, capacity building and technical skills through training. Governments should eliminate tariffs and other trade barriers. Developed countries have to help with financial resources, and new technologies have to be adapted to the recipient country context.
