The ENI CBC Med Programme will be involved in the session “Racing to 1.5°: cities implementing evidence-based climate & energy action in Europe & Mediterranean”, scheduled on 9 of November (6.30 pm-7.30 pm, CEST), which aims to highlight the efforts of local governments and stakeholders in Europe and across the Mediterranean in accelerating climate action. The discussion will showcase impact-driven success stories of cities and local actors in climate and energy plans and concrete measures towards a resilient, climate neutral future.
The session is organized in partnership with the Global/Europe Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy – the largest alliance for city climate leadership across the globe; Clima-Med – the EU-funded project which supports the transition of eight partner countries in the Southern Neighbourhood towards sustainable, low-carbon and climate-resilient development; and the Italian Municipality of Segrate, a town of over 35,000 inhabitants located in the Metropolitan City of Milan.

In particular, Ms. Mortada will share the results of energy-efficiency related ENI CBC Med projects in which the LCEC is partner, namely BEEP (Building Information Modeling for Energy Efficiency in the Public sector), ESMES (Energy Smart Mediterranean Schools Network) and the newly funded capitalization project ‘SEACAP 4 SDG’ (Med SE(A)CAP integration through uniform adapted assessment and financing methods, mainly targeting buildings in education and health sectors, for sustainable development goals in a smart society).
