Insurance and bog protection projects receive renowned Climate Solutions Award
The UN Climate Change Secretariat will honour two international climate projects that are supported by the Federal Environment Ministry. Both projects will receive the ‘Momentum for Change’ Climate Solutions Award. One award recognises the work of the Munich Climate Insurance Initiative (MCII), which helps people prepare for the consequences of climate change. The second award-winning project is Rewetting the peat bogs of Russia, PeatRus for short, which offers great potential for affordable and natural solutions for climate action.
