Abstract:     
This chapter contributes to the dialogue over appropriate legal approaches to climate change technology transfer by providing a law and geography analysis of the technology itself and the way in which it is transferred. It argues that effective technology transfer requires a nuanced analysis of what should be considered environmentally sound in the context of climate change, and how that transfer can be accomplished most effectively in the particular places that receive it. Using the example of technology needs assessment, the chapter argues that more fluid governance models, which are less centred on the nation-state, have the potential to help assist in framing appropriate transfers.
