The EU-funded ClimaSouth project last week took part in the Climate Chance Summit held in Agadir, presenting its main achievements and networking with key partners in the region.

The second edition of the Climate Chance Summit was held in Agadir, Morocco from 11-13 September. Organised by the Climate Chance Association with the participation of the EU-funded ClimaSouth project, the Summit was the most extensive gathering of non-State actors engaged in climate action before the COP23. The summit reviewed the status of climate negotiations with key actors involved in the implementation of the Paris agreement.

Team members from ClimaSouth participating in the summit were able to liaise with several key partners in the region about ongoing activities, as well as briefly discuss the project’s main achievements with Patricia Espinosa, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The ClimaSouth climate finance support activity was presented at a dedicated side-event organised by the General Confederation of Enterprises in Morocco (CGEM), showcasing its Initiative Entreprises Climat Maroc (IECEM) being launched to support companies with new ideas for climate projects.

The ClimaSouth project supports climate action in South Mediterranean countries, assisting with the transition towards low carbon economies and enhanced climate resilience. It was initiated in 2013 and is funded by the European Union. Key stakeholders include technical government departments at operational and policy level, decision makers and civil society representatives.
