Moldova: Online Training on Covenant of Mayors2020-10-27
Within the framework of the Covenant of Mayors - East project in Moldova, on October 27, 2020, an online training was held to raise awareness of participation in the Covenant of Mayors. The event was attended by representatives of EUD Moldova, support structures at the national level, representatives of several cities. The training was dedicated to the passive and potential signatories of the Covenant of Mayors in Moldova.
After presenting successful examples and best practices at the national (Moldovan signatories) and regional (Ukrainian signatories) levels, participants confirmed their desire to renew the status of participation in the Covenant of Mayors and work on the development of local action plans.
As of September 2020, there are 17 signatories in Moldova with the status of "suspended", including the capital Chisinau. These municipalities due to various reasons did not manage to develop or approve their Sustainable Energy Action Plan within 1 year after joining the CoM East Initiative. The system automatically suspended their membership until they upload the SE(C)AP to the Covenant of Mayors website.
