UNIFY: Bringing the EU together on climate action
The UNIFY project aims to facilitate the effective and early transition of Member States across Europe to low carbon and resilient economies by unifying three key policy opportunities: programming of EU funds, National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) and national and the EU’s Long Term Strategies.
Through its targeted activities in 10 Member States and at the EU level, the Unify project showcases that if these three key EU policy processes are consistent, ambitious and in line with the Paris Agreement objectives, they could help all EU Member States to step up climate action.
Through underlining the importance of alignment between the national and the EU’s long term strategies, National energy and climate plans and the local level climate and energy action plans (SECAPs), the UNIFY project reminds the importance of consistency in climate action at different levels.
Besides, Unify project builds processes and capacity to monitor the programming of EU funds, providing targeted inputs at the regional, national, and sub-national level to ensure that Partnership Agreements and Operational Funds support the implementation and increased ambition in National Energy and Climate Plans at the national level and Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans at the municipal level.
The project covers Croatia, Czechia, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain and replicated in many other EU Member States through CAN Europe members. For more information, please visit the project website.
