New Guidebook to Help Southern Mediterranean Cities Develop SEAP
The European Commission has published a guidebook on “how to develop a Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) in south Mediterranean cities”. The purpose of this guidebook is to make energy efficiency and climate change mitigation measures relevant, achievable and compelling to local authorities in the southern Mediterranean context. Through the project “Cleaner Energy Saving Cities in the Mediterranean” (CES-MED), the European Union has opened the Covenant of Mayors (CoM) initiative to local authorities of ten southern Mediterranean countries, including Lebanon. The SEAP process has four phases: initiation, planning, implementation, as well as monitoring and reporting.
