Climate change: €5 million available for cooperation with Mediterranean partners

The European Commission has published a service procurement notice for a project to support climate change mitigation and adaptation in the ENPI South region, with a budget of €5 million. The publication reference of the call is EuropeAid/132702/C/SER/Multi.
The overall objective of the programme is to enhance regional cooperation, between the EU and its Mediterranean neighbours, and among ENP partners themselves on climate change mitigation and adaptation, mainly through capacity development and information sharing. In particular, it aims at supporting the transition of ENP South countries towards low carbon development and climate resilience, in a context of sustainable and democratic development.
Activities will include support in:
·         identifying, designing and formulating mitigation actions, as well as encouraging the adoption of low emission development strategies
·         improving the use and sharing of data on climate science and economic development trends
·         strengthening the capacity of institutions in charge of climate change
The project will also support access to and sharing of information, best practices and legislation on climate change at regional level. Close coordination with other ongoing projects, including 'Paving the way for the Mediterranean solar plan', is expected.
The deadline for receipt of applications is 18 June 2012 at 16.00 Central European Time.  (EU Neighbourhood Info Centre)
