Green Technology Book 2022

The Green Technology Book was launched by WIPO at the recent COP27 summit in Sharm el-Sheikh. This resource presents a range of innovative green technologies that provide solutions to some of the ever-pressing climate change dangers. The solutions are organized in relation to three sectors, which are the focus of the book: agriculture and forestry, the water sector, and cities. Over 200 technologies are presented alongside information about how they can help climate change adaptation. The premise of the book is that while technologies cannot solve climate change on their own, they can make an important contribution.
