Padma has also sent us an update - here is the mail from her:

Last week (5 Nov) SciDev.net published a sub-focus on clean tech transfer as a run-up to COP-15. It is there on the top container on the home page "Talking clean tech at Copenhagen"

It contains an editorial by David Dickson: "Clean technology as public good"

and a feature by me: "Climate change's tech transfer challenge".
