COP25 : The EU's external cooperation post-2020 boosting ambitious and coherent climate action

EU external cooperation post-2020


The EUs agency for Development Cooperation (DEVCO) is in collaboration with the German Development Institute hosting a side event, which will highlight key opportunities for the EU to enhance climate ambition through development cooperation. The event will present the features of the EU’s external cooperation for 2021 – 2027, highlighting the links between climate and development policies, to demonstrate how the EU external cooperation can support the implementation of Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) in partner countries. The event will further specify the climate-development linkages in view of scientific evidence and explore how development cooperation may boost climate action in practice.
