Financial, technology and capacity-building support

The financial, technology and capacity-building support agreed in Cancun applies to both mitigation and adaptation actions by developing countries. The details of these cross-cutting elements of the agreement follow:

Governments decided to increase capacity-building support to developing countries by strengthening relevant institutions, networks and climate change communication, education, training and public awareness at all levels. Included in this is increased sharing of information.

The structure for institutional arrangements for capacity-building, as well as ways to increase the monitoring of the effectiveness of capacity-building, are to be developed in 2011. They will be considered in Durban.
