The United Kingdom will host the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) during November 2021 in Glasgow. This call for bids is aligned with UK commitment to support climate action; create resilience and reduce national emissions.
The British Embassy Algiers has introduced a Climate Fund to support activities in Algeria that focus on the following thematic areas:
supporting efforts to raise Algerian public awareness about climate change and its social, economic and/or environmental impact
activities that support solutions for a green recovery post COVID-19, particularly energy transition and efficiency, green energy, waste management and biodiversity
