From the 27th till the 31st of March 2023, the INTPA-NEAR Environment and Climate Week 2023 gathered colleagues from EU delegations and headquarters to exchange on the latest environmental and climate policy priorities and developments of the European Commission.

Together with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement, the European Green Deal sets a strong European ambition to lead international action on climate change and environment. Europe seeks to become the first climate-neutral continent in the world by 2050, to be a world leader on circular economy and clean technologies, and wants to set new standards for biodiversity.

International cooperation plays an essential role in promoting climate-neutral and resilient development, the transition to inclusive green and circular economies, the conservation and sustainable use of ecosystems and natural resources and the preservation of global common goods. The evolution of the global context and the scale and complexity of the challenges we face also call for new forms of engagement with partner countries based on mutual interests. Putting the right policies in place and mobilising public and private investments are central to the new approach.

During the Session Block on “Water & Oceans”, on 31/03/2023, Professor Michael Scoullos, Team Leader of WES Project, made a WES Presentation “Water and Environment Support in the ENI Southern Neighbourhood: an example of the Source to Sea approach”.
