Abstract

Under the Kyoto Protocol, the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) allows developed countries to invest in abatement opportunities in developing countries and receive credit for the resulting emissions reductions. Thus CDM has the potential to become a tool for technology transfer. Its spirit is to support sustainable development and encourage the transfer of appropriate technologies. The paper analyses the opportunities and potential effect CDM can have on countries, such as Bangladesh, and discusses what policies and strategies should be put in place to facilitate technology transfer.
