October 21, 2016
The EU-funded Sustainable Urban Demonstration Projects (SUDEP-South project) launched this week its first training programme for beneficiary municipalities and their local partners. Four international experts carried out two separate training activities; one dedicated to procurement, monitoring and evaluation and a second one focused in measurement, verification and energy management systems.
A total of 25 participants from the four beneficiary municipalities involved in the SUDEP South project (Ardeh, Baakline, Koura and Halba) have attended the two-day training. The training concludes today with the inauguration of 5 activities in the municipality of Ardeh.
SUDEP-South project started its activities in early 2015 over 12 cities in 6 countries of the southern Mediterranean. Lebanon counts with more than 30% of the 12 projects in the region, distributed in the four municipalities: Ardeh, Baakline, Koura and Halba.
The overall objective of the SUDEP Programme is to assist local authorities on responding to sustainable energy challenges. The specific objective is to enable local authorities to implement sustainable energy actions leading to energy savings, energy efficiency and more use of renewable energy sources as solar energy.
