Aubagne, 16/10/2014 – Technology transfer from South to North doesn't happen every day. The bioclimatic greenhouses developed by GERES in Mongolia have proved their efficiency in high-altitude family farming. The technology could be put in place in the PACA region with support from crowdfunding.
Since 2009, the FAO has defined Climate-Smart Agriculture as agriculture that “sustainably increases productivity, resilience (adaptation), reduces/removes GHGs (mitigation), and enhances achievement of national food security and development goals”.
It should be noted that the way in which these three pillars relate to one another remains vague.
Access to affordable and reliable energy services is crucial to the success of the post-2015 development framework. Shifting to more sustainable and efficient energy systems globally is also crucial for tackling climate change – the most serious threat to future poverty eradication.
On the 19th of October 2012, Groupe Initiatives, a collective of international professional cooperation and development aid associations, organized a study day to discuss "Carbon finance as a means of access to energy for the poor".
The proceedings of this study day are now available in both English and French!

Once the engineers have done their job – by designing affordable devices and equipment that can provide life-changing benefits to the poorest families – it is then up to the “marketers” to do theirs, by organising distribution networks and establishing appropriate marketing strategies.
