In this event with aim of accelerating the dissemination of low-carbon technologies to developing countries though CTCN/GCF, lessons learned and way forward for crystalizing CTCN/ GCF projects were discussed. The event is divided into two parts with CTCN and GCF, in each part, useful information for developing projects under these mechanisms was provided by CTCN or GCF, and the technology and the proposed CTCN or GCF project were introduced by private companies.
