Strategy After the Rio Summit, UNIDO and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) launched pilot projects in resource-efficient and cleaner production to demonstrate preventive environmental strategies. Upon their successful completion, both partners agreed to sustain such production by establishing national capacities, known as the National Cleaner Production Centres (NCPCs), in developing countries and economies in transition. (...) Overall, the UNIDO-UNEP National Cleaner Production Centres and programmes have been established in 47 countries.

TRANSFER OF ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND TECHNOLOGIES, COOPERATION AND CAPACITY-BUILDING : ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND MANAGEMENT OF BIOTECHNOLOGY : REPORT OF THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
Work on the topic of environmentally sound technologies and cleaner production has focused largely on industrial technologies. (...) The concept of cleaner production, launched by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) in 1989, promoted the shift from end-of-pipe to cleaner production solutions. (...) Such assistance — provided, for example, through the Global Environment Facility and the Multilateral Fund of the Montreal Protocol — has been instrumental for many developing countries in obtaining cleaner and more advanced technologies. The Clean Development Mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change may be an important source of finance for the transfer of cleaner technology but needs to be elaborated. 15.

But it also includes cleaner, less carbon-intensive fossil fuel energy systems as well as safe and secure nuclear energy systems. (...) In the transportation sector, we support the actions that have been recommended for promoting cleaner fuels and more efficient vehicles. But at the same time, we emphasize the great need for policies to reduce the overall demand for personal vehicle use, by promoting, for instance, public transport and urban development in accordance with the everyday life and occupational needs of their citizens. And finally, a matter of particular importance for the S&T major group is the critically important need for strong support for research and development. Many of the fundamental challenges we are dealing with today will remain unsolved without further technological advances, for instance, in lowering the costs of solar photovoltaics, in producing biofuels from cellulosic materials, and in finding feasible mechanisms for hydrogen production, storage and distribution.
