02/21: Webinar : Orientations & perspectives for sustainable development in Tunisia


On February 16, 2021, Plan Bleu and the Ministry of Local Affairs and Environment of Tunisia with the support of UNEP/MAP-SPA/RAC, are organizing a virtual conference on the State of Environment and Development in Mediterranean report and the orientations and perspectives for a sustainable development in Tunisia.




Tunisia is facing several sustainable development challenges in relation to the orientations recommended by the new Constitution of 2014: Decentralization, integrated approaches to development, citizenship and public participation in development choices and work.

To make the most of the report's conclusions and recommendations of the SoED 2020, the Ministry of Local Affairs and Environment of Tunisia and Plan Bleu, with the support of the Specially Protected Areas Regional Activity Center (SPA/RAC) intend to bring together all the stakeholders and actors involved in these issues related to sustainable development and marine environment, on Tuesday February 16, 2021.

Three areas for reflection will be offered to participants in the light of the recommendations of the SoED 2020 report:

  • Territorial governance of sustainable development at national, regional and local levels and the challenges of decentralization and sustainable development planning at the local level
  • Integrated approach for sustainable development in Tunisia, the sectors in question and the management of cross-cutting issues such as climate change and biodiversity loss
  • The involvement of the public and stakeholders, especially young people and women in planning for sustainable development

Due to the current sanitary situation in Tunisia and France, this conference will be organized in virtual form, through a platform set up by Plan Bleu.
