The Clima-Med project supports the transition of eight partner countries in the Southern Neighbourhood towards sustainable, low-carbon and climate-resilient development.

Clima-Med project was launched in June 2018 to be implemented over 48 months with a total budget of € 6,9 million, fully provided by the European Union (ENP).

While building trusted relationships with Southern Neighbourhood partners, the project’s action will improve climate change governance and support mainstreaming climate action.

Clima-Med will focus on the following main areas:

  • Supporting sustainable climate and energy policies and strategies both at national and local levels;
  • Providing technical assistance for the formulation and implementation of local Sustainable Energy Access and Climate Action Plans (SEACAPs) in line with the Global Covenant of Mayors principles;
  • Identifying concrete pilot actions to be implemented by national and local authorities;
  • Facilitating climate investments and the setup of finance mechanisms at national and local levels to concretely accomplish those actions;

The target beneficiaries covered by Clima-Med are governmental, local authorities and non-state actors in ENI south countries: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.

Clima-Med has two offices, one in the Mashreq region (Beirut) and one in the Maghreb region (Rabat).
