Climate – Local governments – Call issued for “Climat II” projects" (June 1, 2016)

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development has issued its second call for projects with local governments here in France that involve international cooperation on the climate and the implementation of the Paris Agreement.

The aim of this call for projects, known as Climat II, is to promote the expertise of local French governments in fighting climate disruption in a way that benefits the cities or regions of developing countries in particular.

In line with the Paris Agreement, it encourages decentralized, cooperative efforts that boost the impact of efforts to adapt to climate change in such areas as water, alert management, coastal risks, and food security.
