“Green technology is the development and application of products, equipment and systems used to conserve the natural environment and resources, which minimizes and reduces the negative impact of human activities”
CRITERIA OF GREEN TECHNOLOGY: • It minimizes the degradation of the environment;
It has a zero or low green house gas (GHG) emission;
It is safe for use and promotes healthy and improved environment for all forms of life; It conserves the use of energy and natural resources; and It promotes the use of renewable resources.
4 .an alternative to improving the national economy without harming the environment •.Why Green Technology? Green Technology .conserve the ecosystem as well as costs to the government in overcoming the negative effects from development .increase health levels and the quality of life .solve the problems of destruction of the environment and natural resources .

water contamination.Why Green Technology? QUALITY OF LIFE Due To Negative Impacts From Development Loss of income form polluted resources • Rivers. beaches and etc. cleaning up of illegal dumping of hazardous waste 6 . Loss of ecosystem services • For instance healthy mangroves act as natural nurseries of fisheries industry and protection of coastal erosion Clean-up costs for government • Cleaning up of rivers. Health costs for individual and government • Asthma. food contamination and etc.
What The Government Thinks • Failure to incorporate climate change mitigation and adaptation into development policy has a great potential to undermine future economic growth. • The degree to which climate change will intensify depends on the development trajectory (low carbon development OR business as usual (BAU) high emissions scenario) 7 .
What The Government Thinks Encourage win-win policy initiatives that can yield co-benefits Mitigation efforts – curtail GHG. reduce vulnerability. increase carbon sinks Adaptation – increase adaptive capacity. build resilience 8 .
