This paper proposes a specific structure for a new “distributed innovation” approach to climate technology, building and expanding on the earlier recommendations of the UN Foundation and the Club of Madrid. This approach is designed to scale up existing climate technologies and to develop new breakthrough technologies. It could be one way that both developed and developing countries could collaborate effectively on technology development, deployment and finance.
