2nd International Conference on Climate Change

The leading role of energy systems in decarbonizing efforts of the EMME region was highlighted in the 2nd International Conference on Climate Change.

The leading role of Cyprus for tackling the Climate Crisis was highlighted at the 2nd International Conference on “Climate Change in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East” (EMME region), which successfully took place in Paphos, on 13-14 October 2021, within the framework of the Cyprus Government Initiative for Coordinating Climate Change Actions in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East.

The Conference, which was held both with physical presence and online, was attended by leading environmental scientists, as well as officials from Cyprus, Greece, EU, and Middle East countries. During the event, prominent policymakers, and scientists from all over the world reviewed the manifestations of the climate crisis in the EMME region and discussed the priorities and the main elements of a Strategic Plan for Climate Change mitigation and adaptation.

Basis for the discussion was provided by the results that emerged from the first phase of the Initiative, a set of comprehensive scientific and techno-economic studies leading to policy recommendations for consideration by the Governments of the region. Over the last two years, the studies were developed from contributions of more than 220 experts, primarily from the EMME region, and organized into 13 scientific Task Forces coordinated by The Cyprus Institute.
