The European Green Deal commits to developing a stronger green deal diplomacy, and specially to placing emphasis on supporting its immediate neighbours through strong environment, energy, and climate partnerships with the Southern Neighbourhood. Among the pathways to advancing sustainability and decarbonisation, the Green Economy concept has gained popularity as an attempt to create more inclusive and environmentally-friendly economic development.
The research which will be presented in this webinar is the result of the EuroMeSCo Policy Study: A Euro-Mediterranean Green Deal? Towards a Green Economy in the Southern Mediterranean, carried out in the framework of the EuroMeSCo: Connecting the Dots project, co-funded by the EU and the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed). The project contributes to inclusive and evidence-based policy-making by fostering research and recommendations in relation with the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) South priorities, with a focus on economic development, migration and security.
