The Italian Ministry for the Environment participates to activities and specific programs supported by the most important international organizations (above all the United Nations), by their subsidiary institutes and specialized agencies, with a particular emphasis on protection of environment, promotion of sustainable development and combatting climate changes.

Within this framework, the Ministry participates to the works of strategic alliances and partnerships reinforcing, in the same time, the institutional relationships with the most important countries relevant for the bilateral cooperation in the environmental sector.

Through mechanisms of contribution, both on a voluntary or compelling basis, settled on common rules decided in the international fora, Italy co-finances the promotion of initiative and projects aimed, in particular, to promote clean technologies, energy saving, renewable energies and, under this perspective, new opportunities of job and investment.
