The EU-funded Clima-Med project, and EU-funded UNDP Country Entrepreneurship for Distributed Renewables Opportunities (CEDRO 5) project in Lebanon, have teamed up to implement pilot municipal projects as demonstration actions to replicate. The actions were selected from among those prescribed in the Sustainable Energy Access and Climate Action Plans (SEACAPs) prepared by the following municipalities: Baakline, Kab Elias, Batloun, Bishmizzine and Union of Dannieh with support from the Clima-Med project. They include long-term energy production and consumption measures and patterns, and cover municipal, residential and commercial buildings, urban transport, waste, local green electricity production as well as adaptation actions related to the impacts of climate change.

CEDRO 5 aims to enhance innovation, entrepreneurship and research, assist in technology transfer and the creation of new value chains in the renewable energy and energy efficiency sector, and support enabling policies, trainings and capacity building.

The EU-funded project “Clima-Med – Acting for Climate in South Mediterranean” aims at supporting the transition of partner countries towards sustainable, low-carbon and climate-resilient development. The overall objective of the initiative is to enhance energy security and adaptive capacity of partner countries and subsequently contribute to more stable, efficient, competitive and climate-resilient socioeconomic contexts, while increasing energy sovereignty and reducing CO2 emissions.
