What is CCT?
Building on the strong partnership between Egypt and Germany in the fields of energy and environment, the German Embassy has initiated the “Cairo Climate Talks” (CCT) end of 2011.
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.
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).
