Tunisia: EU-funded Med-EcoSuRe and Co-Evolve4BG projects create synergies targeting sustainable development goals
October 29, 2020
A collaboration agreement was signed on 27 October between the National Institute of Marine Sciences and Technologies (INSTM) and the Mediterranean Renewable Energies Center (MEDREC), at the premises of the Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries in Tunisia.
This agreement defines the axes and types of synergies between MEDREC and INSTM within the framework of the EU-funded Med-EcoSuRe and Co-Evolve4BG cooperation projects.
The main expected synergies to be created are:
Dissemination of the Med-EcoSuRe approach to stakeholders among the tourism actors in the target regions of Co-Evolve4BG;
Exchange of the targeting process and the participatory approach of the final beneficiaries of both projects
Organization of training sessions and joint workshops to capitalize on the synergies results.
The Med-EcoSuRe project offers an innovative approach to the definition and diffusion of cost-effective energy renovation within university buildings, with the perspective of extending results to the whole public buildings sector in the long term.
The Co-Evolve4BG project aims at analyzing and promoting the co-evolution of human activities and natural eco-systems in touristic coastal areas, towards sustainable development of tourist activities based on the principles of Integrated Coast Zone Management (ICZM) and Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP), promoting at the same time Blue Growth in the Mediterranean.
