Budget: € 791 725; EU contribution – € 616 725 (78% of total);
CIUDAD Programme (Cooperation in Urban Development and Dialogue)
Location: Polotsk, Vitebsk region, Belarus; the city of Salé (Marocco)
The main result of the project initiative was the accession of the first cities from Belarus and Morocco to the Covenant of Mayors, as well as the first Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP) were developed. These documents were developed for Polotsk and Sale in accordance with EU standards.
Adhering to this strategy since 2012, the city of Polotsk seeks to make more active use of renewable energy sources (rather than fossil fuels) and to reduce the production of harmful emissions, primarily carbon dioxide. What is especially important: another 35 Belarusian cities are now using similar strategies.
