MedECC present at COP 27 in the first-ever Mediterranean Pavilion

For the first time in COP’s history, the 27th edition will host a Mediterranean Pavilion. The initiative is conceived to highlight both the urgent challenges the region is currently facing, and the innovative solutions already being developed throughout the Mediterranean, raising awareness on a region overlooked in the climate negotiations.

The MedECC will be present in the Mediterranean Pavilion and has been invited by the organisers to play a role of the scientific advisory council to evaluate the proposal of side-events. The MedECC will hold the side-event “Assessments of scientific knowledge on climate change to support evidence-based decision-making” on November, 10th.

Located in the COP27 Blue Zone, the Mediterranean Pavilion will host relevant events and working meetings and provide an exceptional opportunity to highlight these severe challenges as well as to illustrate, share, scale up and discuss the advanced initiatives for adaptation and mitigation applied and planned in this multi-national and multi-cultural region.

The Mediterranean Pavilion is conceived as a space for all regional actors – public and private, scientific and academic, technical, policymaking, civil society, finance, and business – actively engaged in facing the climate crisis in and around the Mediterranean Sea. The initiative is led by the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) together with the United Nations Environment Programme – Mediterranean Action Plan (UNEP-MAP) and two of its regional activity centers, Plan Bleu and MedWaves, the PRIMA Foundation, along with a coalition of the most relevant organizations dealing with climate action in the region
