The challenge: climate change

Addressing climate change and achieving sustainable development is dependent on economic growth that works with, rather than against, the environment. Innovative green technology solutions can help by allowing us to do more with less – be it alternative energy production, using technology to save energy, new forms of transportation or greener forms of agriculture or forestry.

The challenge is enhance the environment for innovation, while enabling speedier diffusion of these new green technologies to all parts of the world, including to developing countries where the need is particularly great. WIPO GREEN offers a practical, market-based contribution to the challenges presented by climate change.

Quote from WIPO's Director General: Innovative green technologies have an important role to play in addressing climate change. Our objective is for WIPO GREEN to become a go-to platform for green technologies.
