Visit of the European Commission in the first year of Urban Klima 2050

Some days ago,  the consortium of the 20 entities participating in the initiative, led by Ihobe, the Basque Government’s public environmental management company, met with the European Commission’s supervisor and the monitoring team, as this initiative is 52% financed – around 10 million euros out of a total budget of 19.8 million euros – by the European LIFE programme.  

The EC’s supervisor for this project has valued the efforts made in this first year by the partner entities, taking into account the complicated circumstances arising from Covid-19. Diana Oancea, who oversees the project from EASME (the European Commission’s Executive Agency for SMEs), has underlined “the integration of climate change into sectoral policies in the Basque Country that is being developed in the Urban Klima 2050 project as a good practice that can be transferred to other regions”.
