Technology transfer will play an increasingly important role in seeking to address the effects of climate change, as WIPR reports.

According to NASA, the earth’s average surface temperature has risen by about 0.8°C (1.4°F) since 1880.

Climate change is brought about by a broad range of global phenomena created, inter alia, by the burning of fossil fuels, which add heat-trapping gases to the earth’s atmosphere. Effects of climate change include a rise in sea levels, ice mass loss in Greenland, and extreme weather events.

Innovation and green technology transfer have emerged as important considerations for fighting climate change and global warming.
