CTI is a multilateral
initiative, operating as an Implementing Agreement under the
International Energy Agency (IEA). The CTI was established
at the first Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework
Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in 1995 by 23 IEA /
OECD Member Countries and the European Commission, and gained
the status as an IEA Implementing Agreement in 2003. CTI's
mission is to bring countries together to foster international
co-operation in the accelerated development and diffusion
of climate-friendly and environmentally sound technologies
and practices. The promotion of technology transfer under
the Kyoto Protocol as incorporated in the Marrakech Accords
is at the core of CTI's work.
