Nélan Sylvaince, the project coordinator, points out that the project unfolds in different phases: in-depth analysis and prioritization of technologies; assessment of potential barriers to the transfer of priority technologies and analysis of potential market opportunities at the national level.

For Minister Jouthe, the start of the project will allow the Ministry to lay the foundations for the establishment of sectoral working groups on the various themes "This project of assessment of technological needs of the country will also help us to clarify our needs in climate technologies and to develop an action plan for their introduction and adoption in key socio-economic sectors, such as agriculture, water resources, energy, forestry..."
