News Clima South: Support to Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation in the ENPI South Region

Length of engagement: Long-term/ Short-term

Duration: 48 months

Start: October 2012

Donor: ENPI

Project Description: 

The overall objective of the programme is to enhance regional cooperation, between the EU and its Mediterranean neighbours (EU–South) and among ENP partners themselves (South–South) on climate change mitigation and adaptation, mainly through capacity development and information sharing. In particular, it aims at supporting the transition of ENP South countries towards low carbon development and climate resilience, in a context of sustainable and democratic development.

The project will focus on building capacity and supporting regional exchanges and cooperation efforts of ENP South partner countries in order to make the transition towards low carbon development. Activities will include support for:

  • identifying, designing and formulating mitigation actions that are appropriate at national level, as well as encouraging the adoption of low emission development strategies on the basis of accurate and up to date measurement, reporting and verification systems,
  • improving the use and sharing of data on climate science and economic development trends in a way that can enhance the capacity of beneficiary countries to elaborate well-targeted adaptation strategies, further increase climate resilience, and mainstream climate change adaptation into other policies,
  • strengthening the capacity of institutions in charge of climate change in order to better position themselves atboth national (in their relationships with other governmental institutions) and international level (for the purpose of enhancing their participation in the climate negotiations).
  • the project will also support access to and sharing of information, best practices and legislation on climatechange at regional level.
