Abstract
This paper examines technology transfer (TT) policies in clean-tech the the lens of global institutions and global agreements over the past decade. It leaves out domestic TT, intra-firm or multinational (private) TT, or local-local TT. The research interest for writing this paper was enlightened by participation in United Nations General Assembly workshops (2013) : (1.) Development, transfer and dissemination of clean and environmentally sound technologies in developing countries; ; (2.) Capacity building to enhance the development, adoption and use of clean and environmentally sound technologies in developing countries; (3.) The way forward: Strengthening the international architecture for environmentally sound technology development, transfer and dissemination. This paper is roughly structured around these three workshops in order to re-define some of the inherent misconceptions which prevailed, and to offer direction going forward. I participated in these consultative workshops at the UN in New York, and continued to participate in the Open Working Group (OWG) series for sustainable development in 2014, which will culminate in Paris 2015.
