Egypt Launches Local Climate Initiatives through the ARCH Project

Egypt has formally introduced local climate initiatives as part of the ARCH (Action for Regional Climate Help) project. Trained participants have undergone a program focused on climate mitigation and adaptation, resulting in the selection of promising project ideas. These selected projects have been awarded seed funding of 500EUR each to facilitate their implementation.

The ongoing mentorship of the chosen projects is a key aspect of the initiative, designed to provide guidance and support for successful execution. The collaboration with local partner YLE strengthens the project's reach and impact, emphasizing community engagement.

Looking ahead, the most successful projects will be considered for upscaling, with a second round of funding scheduled for next year. This initiative aligns with the collective goal of fostering environmentally responsible practices and contributing to climate policy in Egypt.
