Alongside the SEACAP Support Mechanism (SSM) workshop, Clima-Med commemorated the handover of the finalised Sustainable Energy Access and Climate Action Plans, SEACAPs of 32 Lebanese municipalities and Unions of municipalities to the cities’ mayors. These SEACAPs have been developed jointly with the Clima-Med project thanks to the relentless efforts of mayors and municipal technicians from the cities of Batloun, Moukhtara, Khreibi, Hasbaya, Bishmizzine, Donnieh (20 municipalities grouped in 4 clusters) and East Baalbeck Union of Municipalities (7 municipalities); moreover, they have been officially approved by their municipal councils.


Demonstrating the commitment of the local authorities, Lebanon’s SEACAPs feature tangible and impactful actions to tackle climate change challenges. They include a vision and several mitigation and adaptation actions covering sectors such as waste management, buildings, public lighting, agriculture and other land use, transport and mobility, sustainable use of irrigation technologies, wastewater treatment, access to energy and awareness-raising.


All 32 municipalities have joined the Covenant of Mayors for the Mediterranean, CoM Med, which ensures that signatories enjoy high visibility at the regional and international levels through the CoM Med and GCoM websites, boosts financial opportunities for their climate and energy projects, and provides them with the opportunity to contribute to shaping their country’s climate and energy policy.
