The Technology Needs Assessment (TNA) process gives least-developed countries a chance to consider what they need to fulfill their development objectives, identify gaps, and determine the technology solutions required to close or overcome those obstacles. Additionally, the process offers suggestions for the national policies and strategy frameworks required to accomplish the main national priorities and development objectives.
Participants in the TNA process come from various sectors and subject areas, including government line ministries, youth, women, the private sector, NGOs, international organizations, and other development players. The process is driven by the country and is participatory. The process is started based on requests from the country since the TNAs must be demand-driven and have a strong sense of ownership with the country.
The information in the TNA report was compiled and synthesized using data from this survey, stakeholder interviews, and a desk review. The report’s culmination is the validation workshops when national stakeholders support the TNA findings. Following the validation of the study, the offered technological solutions are put into action during the technology implementation planning stage.
