The Environment and Climate Change Facilities support DEVCO units C2 and C6 in their missions to promote and implement the environmental dimension of the new sustainable development agenda, across the 17 SDGs. The Facilities are composed of technical experts that provide thematic guidance, technical support, training and communication in the following thematic areas of the Global Public Goods and Challenges thematic programme: environment and climate change; biodiversity, wildlife and ecosystems; forests and green economy.

Technical experts support staff in DEVCO and EU Delegations as well as partner organisations. They are managed by DEVCO units C2 (Environment, Ecosystems, Biodiversity and Wildlife) and C6 (Sustainable Energy and Climate Change).
