SUDeP Grants awarded to municipalities in the Maghreb & Mashrek

SUDeP, Sustainable Urban Demonstration Projects, is a project funded by the European Union. Its goal is to enable local authorities in the ENPI South Mediterranean Partner Countries to implement actions incorporated in their Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs) or in similar local action plans targeting sustainable urban development.

CES-MED has encouraged municipalities that work with us to apply for SUDeP grants and cooperates closely with the SUDeP team.

Please find in the table below the local authorities that have been awarded a SUDeP grant:
