Clean energy Mediterranean cities project to take part in meeting on urban climate action in Barcelona
June 20, 2017
The EU-funded Cleaner Energy Saving Mediterranean Cities project (CES-MED) will participate in a meeting on Climate Action in Urban Areas, which will be held in Barcelona on the 21-22 June 2017.
The two-day event brings together project beneficiaries of the EU LIFE programme for environment and climate action, relevant authorities and other stakeholders from across Europe to discuss specific actions to advance climate change adaptation and mitigation in the European and international urban context.
The LIFE platform meeting will be an opportunity for CES-MED to showcase the continuous efforts of the project to enhance the skills and knowledge of southern Mediterranean municipalities in energy planning, urban adaptation and mitigation to climate change.
The “Cleaner and Energy Saving Mediterranean Cities” (CES-MED) project is an EU-funded regional initiative set up to provide training and technical assistance support to local and national authorities in the southern Mediterranean region, with a view to helping them respond more actively to sustainable policy challenges.
CES-MED ensures that the actions proposed match with the objectives of the Covenant of Mayors: to reach and even go beyond the European objective to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% thanks to the improvement of energy efficiency and the increased use of sustainable energy.
