Summary Sustainable climate & environment technologies 

BMBF has launched a new funding measure on Sustainable Climate and Environment Technologies to strengthen research cooperation with emerging nations. This is within the scope of the initiative "International Partnerships for Sustainable Technologies and Services for Climate Protection and the Environment (CLIENT)".

The priority subjects of CLIENT are technological or service innovations for sustainable development in the following areas:
• Climate protection: Reducing emissions of CO2 and other greenhouse gases in all industry areas; capturing CO2 and using it as a chemical raw material; increasing energy efficiency in production in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions; environmental protection in products and production / cleaner production; business management; adaptation to climate change
• Resource efficiency: Obtaining and managing resources, environmental protection in production / cleaner production, resource efficiency (resources, materials), resource substitution, closing material cycles, recycling
• Land management: Innovative land use methods (e.g. precision farming), land recycling technologies, adapted technological infrastructure systems, applied remote sensing and geoinformation services for integrated regional planning
• Water management: Regional / urban water resource management, improved water infrastructures in terms of energy and consumption (e.g. production of drinking water, wastewater treatment, extraction of substances in water and irrigation technologies), water remediation technologies, planning instruments for the water sector (e.g. GIS, remote sensing and DSS)
