The European Union is setting up global partnerships as well as enhanced cooperation with third countries in order to put forward its interests and meet the current challenges.

To achieve this, the European Union wants to implement concrete actions with major global economies to ensure that the Paris Agreement is put into practice and that its environmental values are diffused.


The European Union has launched new strategic partnerships for the implementation of the Paris Agreement, a programme co-financed by the EU’s Partnership Instrument (20 million euro) and the German International Climate Initiative (5 million euro) to scale up European climate policy collaborations with other major economies.

Partnerships will be undertaken to facilitate the exchange of climate policy options, to advance bilateral cooperation on investment and to contribute to improving public awareness. They will cover small projects at the national level, study visits, workshops and business forums.
