The Regional Conference on EU for Climate Action & Sustainable Energy in the Neighbourhood South gives the opportunity to take stock of the relevant EU policies in the region, mark the completion of our three current regional projects – ClimaSouth, CES-MED and SUDEP South – and share lessons learned. It will involve EU officials, national focal points and local authorities from the partner countries, representatives from the civil society and the private sector.
EU-Funded SUDEP South SM will present the urban dimension of climate action and on the EU support to local sustainable development.Stay tunned in our website and social networks for further information, videos and photos of the event.
The SUDEP-South project began in early 2015 with 12 cities in 6 countries of the southern Mediterranean. The objective of the SUDEP Programme is to assist local authorities in responding to the sustainable energy challenges and to enable them to implement sustainable energy actions leading to energy savings, energy efficiency and more use of renewable energy sources such as solar energy.

SUDEP support mechanism activities are mainly focused on:
1. Assistance to local authorities and reinforcing their capacities and their partners in the implementation of the demonstration projects.
2. Promotion for the replication of innovative actions and the visibility of the programme’s results.
3. Creation of an enabling environment for the exchange of good practices between project beneficiaries.
4. And finally the development of their own local strategies to ensure widespread dissemination and sustainability of their projects.
