Mediterranean Climate Change Adaptation Awards


The French Environment and Energy Management Agency organizes with the Union for the Mediterranean, Plan Bleu and the Agency for sustainable Mediterranean cities and territories, the 2nd edition of the “Mediterranean Climate Change Adaptation Awards”.

This competition represents an opportunity to submit specific actions developed to adapt the Mediterranean to climate change. Actors involved in activities concretely aimed at developing solutions to address such challenge are invited to apply to this competition, whether public or private stakeholders. Admissible actions can relate to different categories such as “Developments, infrastructure and building”, “ecosystems and natural resources” and “Methods for designing and implementing public policies”. Don’t miss out this opportunity to present your projects, as diverse as they could be, linked to ecosystem services, or to measures developed to raise awareness and promote governance changes to prepare the Mediterranean to the climate change challenge!

The call for applications is open until March, 20th.
