USA and Italy in joint climate change research

The Italian and US governments agreed yesterday to conduct over 20 joint climate change research projects on topics including climate modelling, atmospheric studies and low-carbon technologies. In a joint statement issued after a two-day meeting in Rome, the two governments said these activities would "improve the capability to understand, monitor and predict climatic variations and their impacts". A similar environmental research cooperation protocol was signed by the EU and the USA last October (EED 19/10/01). See statement.
