The Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union, in partnership with the European Investment Bank (EIB) and the Delegation of the European Union in Egypt hosted yesterday a joint webinar on Water Sustainability and Clean Oceans.

The webinar discussed the effects of climate change on water resources and the green transition. It examined cooperation and the need for coordinated global response. The speakers demonstrated the ongoing efforts to mobilise cooperation between the different relevant players, at all levels. Furthermore, the event opened discussions on Egypt’s perspectives of public and private led sustainable development and green investments.

The webinar is part of the EU-Africa 30 days of dialogue on green transition and green investment between African and European partners. It is a series of events and virtual meetings organised across Africa and Europe beginning on 24 March and culminating on 23 April, with the High-level EU-Africa Green Investment Forum, being held in Lisbon. The Forum and the Green Talks are unlocking a month of dialogue and debate between the two continents, paving the way to the preparation of the next summit between the European Union and the African Union.
