Many cities in Romania committed to the European initiative “Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy” showed willingness to put in motion energy transition, but also not all fail to act. In fact there are few cities that have developed plans to adapt to climate change, anticipating Vulnerability. Sharing knowledge on these issues, the discussion about effective tools and methodologies, and confronting experiences can be beneficial for local authorities wishing to accelerate energy transition.

This workshop was an opportunity to explore synergies between climate and national energy strategies and conventions, to present novelties initiative and discuss the tools available. Participants were cities signatories and non-signatories to the Convention, associations of regional / local authorities, energy agencies and national and European representatives, mayors, ministers responsible for EU funds management and representatives of the European Investment Bank (75 participants).
