Civil society organizations, green entrepreneurs and public stakeholders gathered to discuss the challenges for a more sustainable development agenda in Palestine, under the framework of SwitchMed. 80 participants representing almost 70 organizations, contributed to define the green economy sector development in that country, and to identify drivers and opportunities to improve its performance.

Thanks to the organization of 4 dynamic working groups (Regulatory Framework, Access to Finance, Access to Technical Assistance, and Environmental Awareness), the participants had the possibility to be connected to an increasing community of like-minded Switchers in the Region contributing to increase the critical mass around a more sustainable way to address the common goods. 

The SwitchMed sustainable consumption and production programme aims to promote a switch by the Mediterranean economies towards sustainable consumption and production patterns and green economy, including low-emission development, through demonstration and dissemination of methods that improve resource and energy efficiency. It also seeks to minimise the environmental impacts associated with the life cycle of products and services and, where possible, to promote renewable energy.
