Following the 5th anniversary of the Paris Climate Agreement, ADEME, the French Agency for Ecological Transition, in partnership with the Union for the Mediterranean and Plan Bleu, is announcing the launch of the 3rd edition of the Mediterranean Climate Change Adaptation Awards.
The Mediterranean area is the second-most impacted area by climate change after the Arctic. The consequences will be disastrous in the years to come: drop in the availability of freshwater, decrease in food security, increase in the intensity and frequency of extreme weather events, temperature increase, etc.
Cities and rural communities across the Mediterranean must therefore work to create stable social, economic and environmental conditions so that the region is better able to deal with the impact of extreme weather and events linked to climate change.
This 3rd edition is an opportunity to raise awareness of the urgent need to take action and the importance of working together to create inspiring and innovative solutions that can be used throughout the region.
Key competition dates:
Competition start date: 20th January 2021
Competition end date: 15th April 2021
Award Ceremony: June 2021, during the European Climate Change Adaptation Conference (ECCA) in Brussels.
