EU allocates €34 million for Algerian environmental programme

The European Commission announced this week that it will allocate €35 million for an Algerian environmental programme. The programme will focus on protecting the Algiers coastal region, and aims to put the environment and efforts to tackle the impact of climate change at the heart of the country's development policies.
According to the European Commission, support will be given, for example, to a national climate plan, an ecological monitoring system for the coast, management plans for protected areas and studies of public investment costs and recurrent costs, including maintenance. The private sector and civil society will be closely involved in the programme's implementation.
This co-operation programme supplements other EU programmes which have for many years funded environmental protection and measures to combat pollution in the Mediterranean.
