Follow-up on the Covenant of Mayors workshop in Bucharest – 7 November 2017

 

More than 70 participants joined the ´Energy Transition and Climate Mitigation : Local strategies and Support Policies´ workshop


The videos and the presentations of Covenant of Mayors workshop organised in Bucharest (Romania) are now available online for anyone to use. This workshop was the opportunity to explore synergies between the national energy and climate strategies and the Covenant, to discuss the new development of the initiative and to share knowledge and tools on mitigation and adaptation issues.

More than 70 participants were involved in the workshop, amongst them, signatory and non-signatory cities, regional and local authorities associations, energy agencies and representatives of national and European level.

A large number of Romanian municipalities, through their engagement in the Covenant of Mayors (CoM) initiative, demonstrated their willingness to engage in a sustainable energy transition, but not all of them managed to take action. Few also decided to tackle the vulnerabilities of their territories to climate change through the development of an adaptation strategy. This event was the opportunity to share knowledge on these issues, discussing tools and methodologies, confronting experiences can be beneficial for local authorities to succeed in their sustainable energy and climate transition.
