Green Cities – Green Regions [2015 – 2017]


The project “Green Cities – Green Regions” aims to strengthen the partnership between Romanian and Swiss partners in order to contribute to the new challenge – transition to a green economy. Together with our Swiss partner – R20, we decided to focus on this new challenge of green economy due to the fact that the phenomena associated to climate change are more and more frequent in Romania and in the world.

The objectives of the project are the following:

  • Increasing Romanian local authorities’ awareness and knowledge with respect to the green economy and their expertise on low-carbon urban development;
  • Local authorities’ capacity building towards development and implementation of climate friendly local policies;
  • Strengthening the level of cooperation between Swiss and Romanian green municipalities and regions.



  • Management and coordination (partners meetings, reporting and audit);
  • Seminar for Local Decision-Makers on Green Economy for Green Cities;
  • GHG inventory training session for local experts;
  • Study visit to Geneva and Lausanne area (Suisse Romande);
  • Green Cities – Success Stories Brochure;
  • Screening for the best potential green projects in Romania;
  • Developing Action Plans for 5 Green Cities;
  • Thematic seminars on reducing GHG and scaling-up from city to region level;
  • Progress Monitoring in implementing Green Cities policy;
  • International Conference – “Green Cities – Green Regions”;
  • Project visibility and Information dissemination – media, websites, newsletter etc.


The target group:

  • Local decision makers,
