SZREDA team organized the 1st Stakeholders meeting to present the opportunities and prospects the DeCarb project provides


As part of DeCarb project implementation, the SZREDA team organized the 1st Stakeholders meeting to present the opportunities and prospects the project provides.

The event took place on 23.11.2018 (Friday) at 11:00 at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Stara Zagora premises and was open to all interested parties.

The identified project stakeholders are representatives of local and regional authorities and national authorities, business, innovation and organizations working in the region's highly carbon intensive economies.

Switching to low-carbon energy will put the EU economy in a challenging and adaptable situation, as well as having a profound economic and social impact on regions with intensive coal mining. However, it is acknowledged that this transition must be fair; The EU Clean Energy Package for all Europeans is designed to accelerate the transition to clean energy, growth and job creation. In regard, DeCarb Project aims to help public authorities to initiate the necessary efforts, put their their capacities together and exchange experiences to a) identifying growth strategies that minimize the potential negative impacts of the transition to low-carbon energy; (b) ensure the maximum possible funding from the ESIS and the EFSF, as well as other financial instruments; (c) promote public dialogue and address conflicts of interest.

The overall objective of the project is to exchange experience and transfer best practices on how to make the transition from the high-intensity carbon economy to the future of clean energy. This must provide the affected regions with sustainable development, economic and social stability and a role in the energy mix 2030.

Green Infrastructure Network

Brochure Green Infrastructure Network

Green Infrastructure is addressing the spatial structure of natural and semi-natural areas but also other environmental features which enable citizens to benefit from its multiple services. The underlying principle of Green Infrastructure is that the same area of land can frequently offer multiple benefits if its ecosystems are in a healthy state. Green Infrastructure investments are generally characterized by a high level of return over time, provide job opportunities, and can be a cost-effective alternative or be complementary to 'grey' infrastructure and intensive land use change. It serves the interests of both people and nature.

The Commission has produced a brochure explaining the main issues of Green Infrastructure.  More detailed background on Green Infrastructure, including relevant studies with best practice examples, can be found here.
