September 18, 2020. Istanbul, Turkey – The EU-supported EU4Climate project has launched a website with a detailed information about the project, its objectives and main activities. The site offers easier access to the reports about the improvement of climate policies and legislation in the six EU Eastern Partner countries - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.
Besides the latest news in the field and featured activities of the project, the portal provides important information about the main emitter sectors in EaP countries, the level of greenhouse gas emission and actions the governments take for limiting climate change impact on citizens’ lives.
“The launch of www.eu4climate.eu allows having a comprehensive portal for a topic that requires continuous efforts and commitments of governments as well as actors across all sectors of society,” noted Yevgen Groza, the Regional Manager of EU4Climate.
EU4Climate helps the governments in the six EU Eastern Partner countries - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine - to take action against climate change.
“The website is an important tool for finding information on project activities, but even more so to track the detailed progress of each EaP country in fulfilling the requirements of the Paris Agreement, which is our goal,” said Vassilis Maragos, Head of Unit for the Eastern Partnership in the European Commission.
The EU4Climate initiative is funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme. It supports countries in implementing the Paris Climate Agreement and improving climate policies and legislation. Its ambition is to limit the effects of climate and make citizens more resilient to them. It will assist the EaP countries to integrate the low-emissions and climate resilience objectives into development policies and plans, to improve and consolidate climate policies and legislative alignment.
