AER is pleased to invite its member regions to the AER/R20 and partners joint event at the COP22 entitled Innovative Value Chain & Financial Ecosystem for Sub-national Governments this upcoming Saturday, November 12 (Sebou Room, green zone, from 3pm to 4:30pm).
This COP 22 side event, will be the opportunity to show how concretely AER fights climate change by helping its members get access to financing for green projects. Thanks to the AER partnership with R20 in the “100 Solutions Projects Campaign,” which is under the mandate of the Leonardo di Caprio Foundation, AER member regions are able to get access either to free green audits of their green policy or to free financing to implement climate change mitigation measures.
Being the largest network of European regions in wider Europe, AER reaches out to a great variety of regions which is why our network has become the European partner of this worldwide initiative. For the launch of this campaign, AER member regions submitted 36 projects, demonstrating the importance of regional action in the green transition.
AER Vice President, Magnus Berntsson, will represent AER at this must-see side event.
Moreover, AER President, Dr. Hande Özsan Bozatli, accompanied by AER VP Magnus Berntsson, YRN President Gloria Vitaly and Secretary General Mathieu Mori will take part in the following COP22 events:
