WIPO to release new edition of the “Green Technology Book” at COP28; new book focused on climate change mitigation.  

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) will release the 2nd edition of its “Green Technology Book” on December 6th, 2023, at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP28) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates from 12:00-13:30h CET. 


This edition, which will be made available in six languages, shifts its focus towards climate change mitigation, highlighting critical innovations in key sectors for:

  • Industrial decarbonization,
  • Sustainable Agriculture & Land Management,
  • Smart Cities.

This edition of the Green Technology Book will represent an important step forward in our global response to climate change mitigation. The book is more than just a publication. It is a global toolkit for climate mitigation containing a thorough overview of climate mitigation technologies.

Climate Change Mitigation Solutions

In collaboration with the United Nations Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) and the Egyptian Academy of Scientific Research and Technology (ARST), this edition showcases actionable climate change mitigation technologies aimed at reducing emissions and advancing sustainable practices. The book seeks to bridge the gap between the critical need for climate mitigation solutions and their practical implementation across developed as well as developing countries.

The book will present a comprehensive set of solutions, all connected to the WIPO GREEN Database of Needs and Green Technologies. The database showcases a wider array of solutions and facilitates direct contact with technology proprietors. Additionally, the Green Technology Book serves as an important matchmaking tool for fostering connections and partnerships in the field.  

Last year, the Green Technology Book on Climate Adaptation was released at Sharm El-Sheik, Egypt, at the COP 27.  Both books are “living publications” building on the work of the WIPO GREEN platform, which connects green technology providers from around the world with people seeking environmentally friendly solutions.


WIPO GREEN is a free, solutions oriented, global innovation platform that celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. It connects needs for solving environmental or climate change challenges with their solutions. The database consists of user uploads of needs and solutions, green technology patents from the WIPO Patentscope database, imports from select partner organizations, relevant knowledge material, and relevant expert profiles. Through its database, network and acceleration projects, WIPO GREEN brings together key players to catalyze green technology innovation and diffusion.
