[Media Advisory] EC-GGGI Seminar: Cooperation on Climate and Development Strategies in Developing Countries and Emerging Economies

The EC-GGGI Seminar is taking place in Brussels, Belgium. The event is being co-hosted by GGGI and the European Commission under the theme of “Cooperation on Climate and Development Strategies in Developing Countries.” The EC-GGGI Seminar will serve as an opportunity to present experiences, share lessons learned and success stories, and explore progress and challenges in country-level adoption of green growth development strategies by placing an emphasis on Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) planning and implementation.

The seminar is intended to start a discussion between EU institutions, representatives of GGGI, and selected partner institutions on ways to advance the development, financing, and implementation of green growth strategies that help countries to achieve economic growth while meeting their NDCs under the Paris Agreement.

Around 30 participants, including representatives of the European Commission, GGGI and partner institutions are expected to attend the seminar.
