The Covenant of Mayors for the Mediterranean, CoM Med, welcomes five new signatories
March 1, 2023
The Covenant of Mayors is a rapidly evolving initiative where more and more commitment from cities of the Mediterranean in the fight against climate change is noted.
Last month, five new cities in the South Mediterranean region committed to the Covenant of Mayors for the Mediterranean, CoM Med: Semkanieh from Lebanon, Greater Ajloun and Greater Maan from Jordan, and Manouba and Raoued from Tunisia, raising the number of CoM Med signatories to 145.
By committing to this voluntary-based initiative open to all local authorities in the South Mediterranean, Mayors adhering to CoM Med endorse a shared vision for a sustainable future in 2050 in accelerating the decarbonisation of their territories, strengthening their capacity to adapt to unavoidable climate change impacts, and allowing their citizens to access secure, sustainable and affordable energy.
When joining the Covenant, cities commit to playing a leading role in fighting climate change and delivering solutions for sustainable energy by adopting a joint approach to taking mitigation and adaptation actions that will support the implementation of the National Determined Contribution (NDC) target by 2030.
