The ClimaSouth project supports climate change mitigation and adaptation in 9 South Mediterranean countries: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia. The project was initiated in February 2013 and will be implemented over 48 months with a total budget of 5 million Euros provided by the European Union ( ENP ). Key stakeholders include technical government departments at operational and policy level, UNFCCC focal points, decision makers, and other stakeholders such as local government and civil society representatives. Its overall objective is to assist with the transition of partner countries towards low carbon economies and enhanced climate resilience.
About the Climasouth Project
Business Knowledge Platform launched in Lebanon
A ClimaSouth - supported new initiative is underway in Lebanon to promote the establishment of a Business Knowledge Platform. The platform is being established as part of the Lebanon Climate Act, which already brings together 120 companies from the private sector and civil society in Lebanon.
The initiative is implemented in partnership with the Green Mind Society, the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture of Beirut and Mount Lebanon (FCCIAL), the Central Bank of Lebanon and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).
The ClimaSouth project has produced a documentary on climate change in the Mediterranean region. In the aftermath of the historical Paris agreement, the documentary examines the reality of climate change through the experiences of ordinary people, and the insights of leading scientists and decision makers currently shaping the region’s agenda for climate action.
