|Description of programme |
"Climate change governance and information"
Projects under the Climate Governance and Information Priority Area should promote actions contributing to objective of shifting towards a low carbon and resilient economy.
In this context, the development of long term climate strategies and new policy measures, full implementation of climate policy and legislation as well as ensuring a higher uptake of climate friendly technologies is important. These aspects are inextricably linked to achieving, better governance, mainstreaming climate action in other policies as well as promoting knowledge, dissemination of information and stakeholder involvement.
This year projects aiming to enhance climate governance and capacity-building are strongly encouraged to ensure a high impact, e.g. train the trainers' programmes. Pure awareness raising activities (like creating a webpage) are not encouraged. Projects could develop cooperation platforms and share best practices for more effective compliance, enforcement and mainstreaming, and generate support from the public and stakeholders for the Union's policy-making efforts
