The main objective of this paper is to analyze the challenges of transferring clean technology and emerging opportunities under the new climate system, Economic growth in developing countries causes an increase in greenhouse gas emissions, which requires enabling these countries to use climate-friendly technologies. This paper reviews the economic literature on clean technology, related barriers and supportive transfer mechanisms; with a focus on the various types of barriers that prevent the transfer of clean technologies to Algeria, based on both the descriptive and the deductive research methodologies. The study concluded that Algeria must develop a comprehensive strategy to overcome these barriers. Technology transfer is not a one-time activity; It is a continuous process with sequential activities, therefore , as a recipient entity, it must sponsor the process; it requires a domestic technological capacity, a program of training, promotion, research and development to keep clean technology alive and make it grow in its new land because it is vulnerable to fast fading.
