Québec is aware that strong global cooperation is essential for meeting the climate challenge and is answering the call from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) for increased funding to fight climate change in countries that are most vulnerable to its impacts. To that end, Québec is launching the International Climate Cooperation Program.
A budget of 18 million dollars, derived from the Green Fund, has been allocated to the Program, which is managed by the Ministère du Développement durable, de l’Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques du Québec (MDDELCC).
The Program supports cooperation projects between Québec’s academic, research, international cooperation and private sector communities and Francophone countries that are the most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, and does so primarily through technology transfer and capacity building. Priority will be given to projects carried out in Sub-Saharan Africa and the West Indies.
