The Global Environment Facility (GEF) Small Grant Program (SGP), operated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), have launched a call for proposals for Lebanon. The funding opportunity covers five thematic areas: Biodiversity, Land degradation, Climate Change, International Water and Chemicals.
Following the information days held during the last quarter of 2016, for the Algerian communes - Algiers for the central region, Oran for the west and Annaba for the eastern region, the CES-MED project is organizing on 7 June in Ghardaia an information day on the Covenant of Mayors initiative (CoM) and the new energy planning tools available to communes (SECAPs) for the benefit of local authorities in the south of Algeria.
CES-MED joined the 3rd Steering Committee Meeting of the SUDEP South SM, hosted by the Union for the Mediterranean (UFM) in Barcelona (3-4 May 2017). More than 50 participants, representing the six countries from the South Mediterranean (Morocco, Tunisia, Palestine, Israel, Lebanon and Jordan) gathered during two days in Barcelona.
