Gibraltar among select group to benefit from EU climate change adaption project

Friday, 23 November 2012
Gibraltar has been named as one of 21 cities across Europe selected to participate in a new project being organised by the European Commission’s DG CLIMA Action to provide capacity building and assistance in the development and implementation of a strategy for adaptation to climate change in Europe.

This new initiative will take the form of a training programme over a period of eight months, culminating in a conference in May/June 2013 where all cities will present the results of their work.

Gibraltar is part of the Mediterranean coastal cities sub group along with Barcelona, Rotterdam, Almada, Burgas, Ancona and Zadar. Other cities in the scheme include Birmingham, Dublin and Copenhagen.

Minister for Health and the Environment, Dr John Cortes said in a press statement that the Gibraltar government was very pleased to be among a select group of European cities.

"Gibraltar can benefit greatly from involvement at this level, both directly and indirectly, through the contacts it will make with some of Europe’s major cities," he said.
