Step by Step guide to Technology Needs Assessment 

The Technology Needs Assessment project of the UNEP DTU Partnership has prepared this e-learning course to help clarify the various steps in the implementation of the Technology Needs Assessment project in the countries,  

The course is based on UDP Guidance document ‘A step-by-step guide for countries conducting a Technology Needs Assessment’ and is targeted at national coordinators and consultants. The course reflects upon experience from the TNA Phase I (2010-2013) and offers examples to illustrate how the project can be organised and implemented.
