Financing climate and clean energy strategies and measures through Recovery and Resilience Plans and Cohesion Policy programming in Central and Eastern Europe.
At the workshop, we will be looking at how EU funding from the Recovery and Resilience Facility, Cohesion Policy funds and the Just Transition Fund can deliver on the higher climate ambition and what role National Energy and Climate Plans play in the process. The workshop also provides opportunities for multilateral exchange on the experiences and best practices on climate integration in accordant EU funds spending plans.
We kindly invite organisations and institutions implementing EUKI projects in Czechia to an online networking event. It will take place on 3rd December 2020 (from 9.45 till 13.30) via Zoom. Apart from opening words in English, the event will be in Czech.
The aim of the event is to provide a space to get to know each other, to share experiences from EUKI projects in Czechia and to build a network among the implementers. The event will enable us to discuss future policy challenges, find synergies between the EUKI projects and promote a joint approach to climate policy issues. Please see the speakers bios and agenda in the file attached.
European Environmental Bureau and Clean Air Action Group (Levegő Munkacsoport) has started in October 2020 a new project with the participation of CEEWeb (membership across CEE), Economic PoIicy Institute (BG), Centre for Transport and Energy (CZ), Green Liberty (LV), Polish Green Network (PL), Focus Eco Center (RO), Umanotera (SI) and Centre for Sustainable Alternatives (SK). The project is supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). This project aims to have an impact on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF), i.e. the EU budget for the period 2021–27) and the Recovery and Resilience Facility by providing inputs to policy process work, exchanging views, increasing awareness on the necessity of making this EU budget climate-proof and developing targeted recommendations for improving the use of EU funds.
Climate Action by EU Citizens is a project funded by the European Comission running from 2020 to 2024. The project raises awareness, builds capacity, and supports EU citizens, particularly young people, in building public support for ambitious climate change and development policies which have gender equality at their core. A diverse consortium of 20 organisations under the umbrella of Oxfam and the Climate Action Network Europe (CAN Europe) are part of this initiative. Our activities will take place in 13 EU Member States. Partners bring together experience of climate change campaigning and communication in Europe, gender equality, European youth mobilisation, and climate change development programmes in the Global South.
Since 2019, we have been participating in the European LIFE UNIFY project coordinated by the Climate Action Network (CAN), which aims to support the timely and effective transition of EU Member States to a low-carbon economy. Within the project, we focus mainly on the following areas: national climate and energy plans, setting up a new EU budget, motivation and support of cities in adopting their own climate and energy strategies.
Centre for Transport and Energy is a non-profit non-governmental organisation founded in 1998 that focuses on the environmental impacts of transportation and energy production. Our aim is building and reinforcing a wide platform of groups and individuals who are interested in working towards sustainable transport and energy future.
