As a partner of the UN climate change Summit COP22 which kicked off today in Marrakech, and will last until 18 November 2016, the EU Delegation to Morocco published a brochure on EU support to Morocco in combatting climate change.

The publication, issued in French, presents the programmes funded by the EU and European Investment Bank (EIB) in Morocco with the aim of contributing to reducing the causes of climate change and supporting morocco in adopting and implement eco-friendly policies.
“The EU has pledged to allocate at least 20% of its 2014-2020 budget (EUR 180 billion) to the fight against climate change, while its financial arm, the European Investment Bank, in accordance with the commitment made in Lima in 2015, will spend at least 100 billion in climate action in the world by 2020,” said the EU Ambassador to Morocco Rupert Joy in the publication’s foreword.
