The European Union has launched new strategic partnerships to cooperate more closely with major economies to implement the 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change and on environmentally friendly practices more broadly, the European Commission said on November 29, adding that these include a programme co-financed by the EU’s Partnership Instrument (worth €20 million) and co-financed by the German International Climate Initiative with €5 million) to advance bilateral cooperation on climate change and contribute to improved public awareness.

In addition, and following the 14th EU – India Summit which reinforced the strategic importance of India as a key partner of the European Union in the fields of climate action, environment, climate change and urbanisation, the EU is also launching a programme entitled “Business Support to the EU-India Policy Dialogues”, worth €3.8 million, to develop the EU – India partnership further by promoting sustainable energy, urbanisation and environmentally friendly practices, with technical solutions from EU businesses, the Commission said, adding that this will also contribute to an increased and diversified presence of EU companies in the Indian market.
