The Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM) strengthens links with PLATFORMA
Today (24 February 2021), the Parliamentary Assembly of the Mediterranean (PAM), represented by its Secretary-General Ambassador Sergio Piazzi in Geneva (Switzerland) and PLATFORMA, represented by Frédéric Vallier, Secretary General of CEMR in Brussels (Belgium), signed an important Memorandum of Understanding via videoconference at the occasion of the meeting of PLATFORMA Steering Committee.
The agreement reaffirms the long-standing partnership between the PAM and PLATFORMA, and underscores the two organisations’ shared efforts to advance an open, inclusive, prosperous, and secure Euro-Mediterranean region, with an immediate focus on Human Rights, health security and economic recovery from the pandemic of COVID-19.
The partnership builds on previous PAM-PLATFORMA joint activities, including the high-level webinar on the “EU Neighbouring South-Safeguarding human rights in the post-Covid-19 context”, organised in September 2020.
The MoU leverages each organisation’s comparative advantage to promote sustainable development in Member States and partner countries through effective and accountable governance; infrastructure, energy, and digital connectivity; women’s empowerment; resilience to environmental and climate change challenges; and access to basic social services, such as health and education.
