The Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) is organizing the Climate Week on 9-11 April in Barcelona, Spain. The event will provide a discussion and networking framework aiming to create and enhance synergies among the different climate‑related actors, and to enrich their exchanges. A wide range of actors (UfM members’ representatives, civil society, IFIs, scientific experts…) will gather around different topics, all related to climate action in the Mediterranean region.
Different meetings will take place during the UfM Climate Week: The Seventh Meeting of the UfM Climate Change Expert Group (UfM CCEG); A dedicated workshop on the impact of climate change on the agricultural sector; The 6th meeting of the Regional Climate Finance Committee (RCFC); The UfM Climate Change Scientific meeting with the MedECC network, a community of more than 400 scientists from 35 countries studying the effects of climate and environmental changes in the region.
During the UfM Climate Week, the UfM Secretariat will also host the third General Assembly meeting of the Mediterranean Youth Climate Network (MYCN). MYCN is a network of youth associations of the Mediterranean region deeply concerned about the effects of climate change in the region and strongly involved and engaged to take action and make it a priority while contributing to international and regional climate fora.
