Event EIB MED Conference : Climate Action in the Mediterranean

The EIB MED conference is structured around three sessions:

 From Paris to Marrakech – The road travelled since COP21: After the historic agreement reached at Paris COP 21 everyone is now focusing on implementation. This session will focus on how climate action can contribute to meeting the SDGs in the Mediterranean region. The discussion will address the implementation of the Paris Agreement, including progress on regulations, strategies and investment plans for both mitigation and adaptation.

 Increasing support for adaptation: Why it matters in the Mediterranean region: Making the Mediterranean region resilient to climate change calls for swift action to assess and reduce the climate vulnerability of different areas and economic activities. Accelerating adaptation actions in the Mediterranean region is necessary as climate change is increasingly affecting fundamental aspects such as water availability, food production and the safety and quality of life in urban areas.

 Climate Finance: Supporting the implementation of national climate action plans. This session will highlight the diverse range of available climate financing tools and advisory services available in the region and present ways in which clients can best avail themselves of these services to improve their projects.The conference will bring together high-level players working in the environment and climate change ecosystem – national and regional authorities, entrepreneurs, scientists, research centres, regional banks, international financial institutions and international organisations.

English, Arabic and French interpretation will be provided throughout the conference.
