Understanding the Context and Barriers in Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon
Join Guidehouse for an upcoming online seminar, Climate-Friendly Buildings in the MENA Region: Understanding the Context and Barriers in Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon. This seminar will look at the buildings sector in the MENA region and explore how the BUILD_ME project is accelerating the uptake of energy efficiency and renewables in buildings as part of the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment. Guidehouse and our partners will take an in-depth look at the current status of and barriers to implementing climate-friendly solutions for buildings in Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon. The project team will present their insights and multi-faceted approach to addressing the unique challenges in the region. This seminar will be followed by a second online seminar in November that will take a closer look at BUILD_ME’s tools and solutions for upscaling and financing climate-friendly building solutions.
