Appendix 1-16 Case Study by Chapter Cross Reference


The following lists case studies in relation to chapters.

CHAPTER 1: Case (s) 1, 15, 17, 19, 27. These cases reflect transfer processes that cover applications/technologies ranging from small scale (e.g. cookstoves) to large scale (e.g. heat recovery in the Chinese steel industry).

CHAPTER 2: Case studies illustrate inter-country technology transfer (forestry -case 25); South-South transfer (cookstoves - case 1); North-South (many including CFC-free refrigerators case 23); and North-East (biomass boilers in the Baltics - case 18). The cases also illustrate TT processes based on best practices (DSM - case 10, CPACC - Case 20), as well as cases meant for demonstration purposes of stimulating technology transfer (Case 18).

CHAPTER 3: The case studies bring out the experiences from international agreements such as the Montreal Protocol (cases 4, 17 and 23), and the AIJ process (case 12).

CHAPTER 4: Cases that bring out the importance of institutional arrangements as an enabling environment include: DSM in Thailand (case 10), TIFAC (case 27).

CHAPTER 5: A large number of case studies address the use of subsidies to promote market development. These include: wind in Inner Mongolia (case 3), Butane gas stove by TOTAL (case 7), renewables in Ladakh (case 14). Innovative private sector initiatives include: Mobil (case 13), Green Lights (case2), PV in Kenya (case 5), micro-hydro in Peru (case 25), GEF in India (case 22). Public-private partnerships are illustrated by cases 4, 17, 22 and 23

CHAPTER 7: Cases relevant are: cookstoves (case 1), Green Lights (case 2), Inner Mongolia Wind (case 3), PV in Kenya (333.htm), Butane in Senegal (case 7), Ladakh renewables (case 14), CFC-free refrigerators in Thailand (case 23).

CHAPTER 8: Cases relevant: Brazilian Ethanol programme (case8), Transport in Uganda (case 11).

CHAPTER 9: Cases relevant fall in the category of technologies, new innovations and corporate leadership. Cases reflecting a technological initiative are Ecofrig in India (case 4), heat recovery in Chinese steel industry (case 15), ODS in Mexico (case 17), Biomass boilers in the Baltics (case 18), CFC-free refrigerators in Thailand (case 23). Mobil (case 13) reflects corporate leadership. The Bamboo reinforced cement case (case 9) represents the new innovations in technologies and an application from North-South transfer to South-South transfer.

CHAPTER 10: Cases cover decentralised and centralised applications. Decentralised applications include: Coal power plant (case 6), Inner Mongolia Wind (case 3), PV in Kenya (case 5). Centralised applications include micro-hydro in Peru (case 24).

CHAPTER 11: Cases available: mangrove rice variety (case 29)

CHAPTER 12: Cases relevant are: tree growers cooperative (case 25), reduced impact logging (case 26), and ethnomedicine (case 28).

CHAPTER 13: Cases available: biogas digester (case 19).

CHAPTER 14: Ethnomedicine (case 28)

CHAPTER 15: Cases include indigenous technologies (now case 16, earlier case 30), CPACC (case 20), concrete armouring (21), Coastal zone management in Cyprus (case 16).
