Technology transfer in Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects of the Kyoto Protocol has become one of the important issues addressed both in policy agenda and by academic scholars. In many CDM project host countries, technology transfer is among the key provisions of sustainable development objectives of the CDM projects. This paper is an effort to investigate CDM projects' related technology transfer process from the organizational learning perspective. The prerequisite for successful technology transfer and organizational technological learning is to foster Technological Capabilities (TC) of an organization. In this paper, the authors used data from the survey of the CDM project host organizations in four largest CDM host countries India, Brazil, Mexico and China.
