The CES MED project continues its activities related to the consolidation of its achievements in favour of the Communal Popular Assembly (APC) in environmental planning, energy and climate resilience.
In the lights of this logic, the project will start, on 19 and 20 December 2017, a training and monitoring evaluation of a grouped SEAP in the Daira of Batna and will assist the municipalities according to the instructions that the Wilaya of Batna received from the National authorities. It should be noted that the three CES-MED pilot cities have been positively assessed by the Algerian National authorities and that their replication is under study by the APRUE.
The three Communal Popular Assemblies of Ghardaia will also participate in this training, following the awareness seminar to the SEAP methodology and the Covenant of Mayors held last May.
The two-day Batna training will be performed in collaboration with the APRUE and the University of Blida. The speakers will be Mr. Kamel Dali, Project Director at the APRUE, Mr. Menouère Boughedaoui (University of Blida) and Mr. Pierre Couté, Maghreb Senior Expert to the project. Batna energy team officers will also share their successful experience in the preparation of the SEAPs together with their counterparts in other communes.
The CES-MED project is an EU-funded regional initiative set up to provide training and technical assistance support to local and national authorities in the southern Mediterranean region, with a view to helping them respond more actively to sustainable policy challenges.
CES-MED ensures that the actions proposed match with the objectives of the Covenant of Mayors: to reach and even go beyond the European objective to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% thanks to the improvement of energy efficiency and the increased use of sustainable energy.
