You Better Tech Yourself

Is this something to get excited about? Could the Cancun talks of 2010 produce a "tech transfer" deal for developing countries and poor populations that will be hardest hit by climate change? Negotiators are considering it, according to Reuters.

Still up in the air are critical elements like how technology financing will flow, who will govern the scheme and the extent of global intellectual property rights (IPR).

Despite the holes, "tech transfer" is seen as one of the furthest along and least controversial aspects of a potential Cancun package at the Nov. 29 to Dec. 10 talks.

It's the first thing I've seen of substance that has emerged.
