At the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) announced it is supporting developing countries on the path to sustainable energy production and seeking to expand climate risk insurance.

Together with the Moroccan Delegate Minister in Charge of Environment Dr Hakima El Haite, Germany’s Federal Development Minister, Gerd Müller, presented a new global climate partnership at the Climate Change Conference in Marrakech in mid-November.

The aim is to provide funds, expertise and technology to poor countries to enable them to achieve the national climate goals (Nationally Determined Contributions, NDCs) they have committed to under the Paris Climate Agreement. Minister Müller noted that the partnership’s founding members include more than 40 industrialised nations, developing nations and international organisations.

Support on the way to sustainable energy production

Among other programmes, BMZ is supporting the Africa Renewable Energy Initiative (AREI), with whose help enough electricity will be generated from renewable energies to replace some ten coal-fired power plants.

The Minister also announced further support for investment in the world’s biggest and most modern solar power station in the Moroccan desert.
