The Clima-Med project is joining the twenty-fifth session of the Conference of the Parties (COP 25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) that will take place in Madrid, Spain from 2-13 December 2019, under the Presidency of the Government of Chile.
Together with the Union for the Mediterranean Secretariat (UfMs), the Clima-Med project side event titled “Climate action true-to-life steps: initiating policies, climate finance access & implementation” took place on 3 December at the EU Pavilion.
By giving the floor to projects' partners and beneficiaries from national and local authorities, the event showcases their contributions to mainstream climate actions and the implementation of NDCs, done through concrete mitigation and adaptation strategies to fill the climate policy gaps in the eight South Mediterranean countries, covered by the project. Moreover, the side event will be an excellent opportunity to give greater visibility of their evident role and involvement towards the international community.
During the event, Ufm presented the results of the UfM International Climate Finance studies (2019) and the methodology for developing a Mediterranean Climate Finance Strategy in the perspective of the 2nd Ministerial Declaration on Environment and Climate Change, foreseen for October 2020.
