TECHNOLOGY COOPERATION AGREEMENT PILOT PROJECT
The Technology Cooperation Agreement Pilot Project (TCAPP) was launched by several U.S. Government
agencies (USAID, EPA, and DOE) and programs (USCSP and USIJI) in August 1997 to establish a model for
climate change technology cooperation with developing and transition countries. TCAPP is currently facilitating
voluntary partnerships between the governments of Brazil, China, Kazakhstan, Mexico, and the Philippines, the
U.S. and other OECD countries, international donors, and the private sector, on a common set of actions that
will advance implementation of clean energy technologies. The five participating countries have been actively
engaged in shaping this initiative along with international donors and the private sector. This program helps
fulfill the U.S. obligation to support technology transfer to developing countries under Article 4.5 of the United
Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. TCAPP also provides a mechanism to focus resources
across international donor programs on technology cooperation needs of developing and transition countries.
- Foster private investment in energy technologies that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and produce
economic benefits for the country.
- Engage in-country and international donor support for actions to build sustainable markets for clean
- Establish technology cooperation agreements as an organizing structure for coupling in-country, donor,
and private-sector climate change mitigation actions.
TCAPP fosters a coordinated response by OECD countries, international donor organizations, and the
international business community to the climate change technology cooperation needs of developing and
transition countries through two basic steps. First, interagency teams in developing and transition countries
establish frameworks that define their technology cooperation needs and the actions their government is
ready to undertake in cooperation with donors and the private sector. Second, international donors and
businesses support implementation of actions by the countries for reducing market barriers and directly
facilitating private investment.
