Environment & Climate change in the Mediterranean: UfM Working Groups meet to take action against climate and environmental change in the Mediterranean
March 20, 2017
Around 100 representatives of governments, agencies, civil society, private sector as well as environment and climate change experts gathered in Barcelona last week to attend the UfM Working Group on Environment and Climate Change meeting. The aim of the meeting was to advance the regional agenda on environment and climate change for the next years and support all UfM Member States in the implementation of the Paris Agreement through their nationally determined contributions.
Additionally, the meeting set the path towards the post 2020 UfM agenda to take action against the upcoming environmental and climate-related challenges.
Immediately after, the UfM Climate Change Expert Group met for the fifth time to implement the recommendations of the Ministerial Declaration. More concretely, the work undertaken by this group of experts aims to support all UfM Member States in the implementation of the Paris Agreement and to prepare for their nationally determined contributions.
