The ADEME 3rd Mediterranean Climate Change Adaptation Awards, supported by the Union for the Mediterranean and Plan Bleu, aimed to put the spotlight on committed regions and, most importantly, showcase concrete mitigation projects by public and private figures (councils, charities, universities, businesses etc.) in urban, rural or coastal areas surrounding the Mediterranean.

Over 50 projects were submitted by 16 Mediterranean countries with over half from the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean and 2/3 from public bodies. There were 3 winners out of the 50 projects but the event’s big winner was Algeria’s National Sanitation Office for its innovative water treatment plant with filters in the Tamacine area.

The 3 winners will be invited to the stage at an international conference where their projects will be showcased. The Big Winner will also be invited to the IUCN World Conservation Congress to be held between September 3rd and 11th 2021 in Marseille. They will also receive support from the awards’ partners.
