EU Climate Policy Roadshow (Clima East): Azerbaijan National Workshop

The overall objective of Clima East is to support the ENP East countries (i.e. Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) and the Russian Federation so that they are better equipped for greenhouse-gas emission reductions and better prepared to deal with climate change impacts.

The overall objective of Clima East is to support the ENP East countries (i.e. Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) and the Russian Federation so that they are better equipped for greenhouse-gas emission reductions and better prepared to deal with climate change impacts.

This technical assistance project (budget EUR 7 million) constitutes one part of a larger 'Clima East’ project package, which will also include a pilot project component (budget EUR 11 million) supporting the development of ecosystems-based approaches to climate change. This second component, due to be launched soon and implemented separately but in close coordination with the technical assistance project, is expected to finance a number of pilot projects in the region that will demonstrate the relevance of nature management techniques for climate mitigation and adaptation.

The specific objectives of the technical assistance project are to foster improved climate change policies, strategies and market mechanisms in the partner countries that are more in line with the EU acquis, by supporting regional cooperation and improving access to information on EU climate change policies and acquis.

Both Anatoly Shvidenko and Florian Kraxner will make presentations. Please see Workshop Agenda for details.
