Clima-Med had the honour to attend the 9th UfM Climate Change Expert Group Meeting and the joint session organised with the 2023 Annual Meeting of the Energy Platforms that took place on 4 and 5 May in Barcelona. The meetings gathered many governments, NGOs, policymakers, and stakeholders to share experiences, discuss climate issues and actions and advance joint strategies to tackle climate change in the #Mediterranean region.
Clima-Med was represented by Naguib Amin, the Project Team Leader who highlighted the importance of adaptation challenges facing the cities. In his presentation, he shared the different actions and approaches undertaken by the Clima-Med project at the local level and by engaging national authorities in mainstreaming adaptation, developing innovative financial models and tools, and establishing the CoM Med initiative. It was an excellent opportunity to showcase the importance of adaptation measures included in over 100 SEACAPs developed by beneficiary Mediterranean cities with the support of Clima-Med.
