Towards decarbonised economies: a joint Euro-Mediterranean endeavour, against all odds11 November 2022 | Conference | English | Sharm el-Sheikh (Egypt)
For the first time in history, COP27 (6-18 November 2022) will host a Mediterranean Pavilion, seeking to highlight both the pressing challenges facing the region and the innovative solutions already developed for a region seen as one of the most threatened by climate change.
The pavilion, promoted by the Union for the Mediterranean, the PRIMA Foundation, and UNEP-MAP, together with a group of competent organizations and a scientific committee, will host numerous activities and bring together key players from our region.
In this context, the IEMed organises this debate to offer different perspectives on climate change and to promote green growth and the energy transition in the Mediterranean in a context complicated by the war in Ukraine.
The session will be presented by Senén Florensa, Executive President of the IEMed, and moderated by Roger Albinyana, Managing Director of the IEMed.
Laura Basagni will share some insights from the EuroMeSCo policy study she coordinated “Anticipating and Mitigating Side-Effects: The Road to a Successful Green Transition in the Euro-Mediterranean Region” and reflections on the effects of war in Ukraine.
Emad Adly will bring to the panel not only Egyptian expertise but also a regional civil society perspective.
And Josep Canals-Molina will explain how cities in the Mediterranean are at the forefront of the decarbonization agenda.
