Second Meeting of the UfM Working Group on Environment and Climate Change

As partner of PANORAMED, the Italian Agency for Territorial Cohesion participates in a working session at the Union for the Mediterranean premises

The Italian Agency for Territorial Cohesion was invited to take part to the Second Meeting of the UfM Working Group on Environment and Climate Change that took place in Barcelona last 12 and 13 November.

The WG is mandated to meet regularly, at least every two years, and where appropriate in synergy with other regional meetings dealing with similar issues. It aims to review progress in the implementation up to date of the recommendation of the 2014 UfM Ministerial Declaration on Environment and Climate Change adopted in Athens, and provide suggestions for further action and follow up.

The participation of the Italian partner was another important step towards the communication and sharing of the activities of PANORAMED aimed at the promotion of strategic projects and the involvement, channelled through UfM as associate, of the main institutions of the countries of the South shore of the Mediterranean.
