Building on the strong partnership between Egypt and Germany in the fields of energy and environment, the Cairo Climate Talks (CCT) were initiated in 2011. Public events and expert workshops provide a platform to exchange experiences, raise awareness and foster cooperation between policymakers, business, the scientific community, and civil society.
CCT is a cooperation between the German Embassy in Cairo, the Egyptian Ministry of Environment, the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ).
CCT Junior provides activities on climate change and environmental protection for kids of all ages and the annual CCT Environmental Journalism Award rewards journalist covering environment relevant topics. The broad network of partners allows CCT to offer diverse events, for diverse audiences and to participate in a number of environmental events.
The Cairo Climate Talks are a series of events meant to provide a platform to exchange experiences, raise awareness and foster cooperation between policymakers, business, the scientific community and civil society.
They consist in monthly podium discussions with leading policymakers and experts from Egypt, Germany and around the world, which are usually accompanied by half-day capacity building workshops and round table
discussions for practitioners from Egypt.
In our public podium discussions, we will be taking photos. These images will be used to publicise on our website in press releases, and also on our Facebook page. If you would like to delete your images, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Cairo Climate Talks are conceived, organized and hosted as a cooperation between the German Embassy in Cairo, the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of State for Environmental Affairs (EEAA), the German Science Center (DWZ), the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the Egyptian German High Level Joint Committee for Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Environmental Protection (JCEE).
