Following up on the agreements reached at the Buenos Aires event in October 2018, EUROCLIMA+ will hold a regional workshop in Quito from April 2 to 4, 2019.

March 27, 2019. Brussels, Belgium. With the participation of representatives from each of the 18 EUROCLIMA+ member countries together with representatives of the European Union and the Programme’s implementing agencies, a regional meeting will take place this coming April 2-4.

The purpose of the workshop, to be held in San José de Puembo, Ecuador, is to agree on the general operating framework of EUROCLIMA+ as well as the scheduling and implementation of the new actions that we expect to execute in the coming years.

Among other topics, the six established lines of action that are planned to be implemented with the new EUROCLIMA+ budget allocation will be discussed and analysed. These include:

  • Strengthening of institutions, plans and policies linked to climate change
  • Strengthening for climate financing and investment
  • Improvement of climate policy transparency and accountability, and NDC implementation
  • Improvement in coordination between sectors and levels of government
  • Strengthening education on climate change, participation and awareness
  • Strengthening the incorporation of the gender perspective and the participation of vulnerable and indigenous groups

EUROCLIMA+ is the European Union's flagship programme on climate change for Latin America, which is already implementing 41 projects in various countries of the region and it is expected that more than 55 projects will be operational by the end of the year. In addition, several dialogue roundtables have been contemplated in the member countries in order to define national actions with the support of the Programme.
