Climate Technology

Climate Technology

Innovators in developing nations are devising bold new answers to climate change. At our Climate Innovation Centers, we help clean-tech entrepreneurs launch companies, create jobs, and provide their communities with cleaner energy, water, food and air, while using fewer resources.

Global Climate Innovation Centers

The CTP’s flagship initiative is the network of Climate Innovation Centers, or CICs. The CICs are entrepreneur and new venture support facilities tailor-made to respond to a country’s development challenges. They provide holistic support that goes beyond traditional incubation, including seed financing facilities, specialized policy interventions and specific network linkages as well as technical facilities, and business training.
