The summit was launched by Cyprus’ agriculture minister, Costas Kadis, on the sidelines of the 2nd ministerial meeting of Cypriot President, Nicos Anastasiades’ Initiative on Climate Change in the Eastern Mediterranean.

In attendance was Greece’s Minister for climate crisis and civil protection, Christos Stylianides, Israel’s climate protection minister Tamar Zandber and Mark Kasman, director of international relations in the US environmental protection agency attended the meeting.

The ministers will reconvene later this year to finalise the recommendations and commitments under the collaboration.
