Workshop in Tunisia for the preparation of 10 new SECAPs

The CES-MED project, in collaboration with the National Agency for Energy Conservation (ANME - Agence Nationale de la maîtrise de l'Énergie) held a training workshop for the preparation of 10 new SECAPs in Tunisia.
 
The two-day event held in Sousse, on January 30 - 31, 2018, brought together representatives of the technical teams of the 10 communes, as well as local staff from the Tunisian Electricity and Gas Company (STEG) and the transport sector, in order to train them on easy collection of the data,  necessary for the preparation of Baseline Emission Inventory (BEI) for the SECAPs.
 
Based on manuals adapted for Tunisia, the participants also started thinking about the action plans of the communes so that will allow them to quickly undertake the preparation of the SECAPs.
Similarly, a specific concept note on the issue of necessary climate adaptation measures for Tunisian municipalities that will be included in their new SECAPs documents, was presented to the trainees. 
 
The workshop was delivered with the assistance of Mr. Samir Amous, national consultant for the CES-MED project in Tunisia. Pierre Couté, Senior expert for Maghreb and Oussama Nagati, Focal Point of the CES-MED project in Tunisia, also presented a set of communication actions to be taken by municipalities to increase public awareness and the coherence of CES-MED actions with the national programs engaged by ANME in Tunisia.
 
The communes represented during this workshop were: Kasserine, Beja, Hammamet, Djerba Midoun, Mahdia, Ezzahra, Hammam Lif, La Marsa, Gafsa and Jendouba.
