Type de monographie : Ouvrage

Résumé

This book tells how the Montreal Protocol stimulated the development and worldwide transfer of technologies to protect the ozone layer. The authors assess over 1000 technology transfer projects funded under the Montreal Protocol's Multilateral Fund and the Global Environment Facility, and identify lessons that can be applied to technology transfer for climate change. Crucially, the authors also identify generic principles and lessons that can be applied to the Kyoto Protocol, its post-2012 successor and numerous other critical environmental contexts including marine and air pollution, hazardous waste, biodiversity and desertification. Ultimately the book provides the only thorough assessment of successful technology transfer of the nature and scale required for combating climate change and other global environmental challenges. Extract from the table of contents: contours of technology transfer; background of the efforts to protect the ozone layer; technology change and transfer within and between industrialized countries; the special problems of the transfer of technology to the military and space agencies; aerosols, sterilants and miscellaneous uses; halons; foams; solvents; methyl bromide; technology transfer to phase out ODSs in refrigeration and air conditioning (technical options and choices; current status of each refrigeration sector); barriers experienced in technology transfer, and solutions; alternative technologies, retrospective and prospects; cross cutting issues.
