The European Union, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources of Azerbaijan have organised a School Symposium on Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation measures. The symposium took place at the Modern Educational Complex, located in the capital Baku, and provided a platform for high school students to showcase their research projects on climate change mitigation and adaptation measures.
The participants presented their projects developed as part of ‘The Future Starts Here’ contest, which attracted approximately one hundred schoolchildren from 13 schools. The winners were awarded at the Symposium.
The event was part of the EU-funded EU4Climate project and the Green Climate Fund-funded National Adaptation Plan (NAP), both implemented by the UNDP.
“Under the EU4Climate Programme as part of the strong partnership between the EU and the Government of Azerbaijan, the European Union supports Azerbaijan in its commitment to update and enhance the country’s Nationally Determined Contributions under the Paris Agreement, to build national capacities to integrate low-emission and climate-resilient actions into the national development plan as well as align climate change legislation with the EU standards,” said Peter Michalko, EU Ambassador to Azerbaijan.
