We are now collaborating with the International Climate Initiative (IKI) in their project “Political dialogue and knowledge management on low emission strategies in the MENA region”.
The project’s objective is to support the partner countries in identifying and implementing suitable political instruments to reach their national climate change targets for certain sub-sectors. We will take part in a stocktaking mission in Cairo (Egypt) to carry out a cost-benefit-analysis of adaptation measures to climate change. Together with the Egyptian stakeholders we will assess and rate existing and planned adaptation measures. Egypt is considered as highly vulnerable to climate change even though it has a comparably low contribution to global greenhouse gas emissions. We are looking forward to participate in the development of a strategies and next steps for conducting further comprehensive studies.
