14 November. Marrakech.
The COP22 will be the occasion for the official launch, on 14 November at 9 a.m. at the European Union Pavilion, of the Regional Dialogue Platform on Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (REEE).
Following the launch earlier in 2016 of the UfM Regional Electricity Market Platform and the UfM Gas Platform, the REE Platform aims to promote gradual implementation of energy efficiency and renewable energy measures in order to foster socio-economic development in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
The Union for the Mediterranean: towards a COP22 Mediterranean Agenda
In accordance with its mandate, the Union for the Mediterranean is deeply involved in the drive for a Mediterranean climate change agenda. Sustainable development issues (water, the environment, climate change, energy, sustainable urban development, the blue economy, transport, climate financing) are at the heart of the UfM’s priority areas for strengthening regional cooperation.
The UfM therefore wishes to take advantage of the COP22 as an opportunity to act upon certain activities initiated in 2015 and 2016 and that could be integrated into the process of implementing the Paris Agreement. The aforementioned activities can be found here.
