Abstract

The impacts and costs of climate change will depend substantially upon the rapid development and widespread dissemination of a wide variety of new climate change mitigation and adaptation technologies. This chapter addresses the choices that government policy-makers and private actors must and will make within the innovation policy system to fund and develop climate change related mitigation and adaptation technologies (whether or not subject to IP rights) as well as to transfer those technologies around the world to address climate change-related needs. The emphasis on public-private partnerships (PPPs) to achieve the sustainable development goals (SDGs), including use of PPPs to address climate and energy SDGs, requires careful calibration of the many different law and policy choices.

Keywords: Public-private partnership, sustainable development goals, climate change, energy, intellectual property, patents, mitigation, adaptation, technology transfer
