The first national meeting of the Sustainable Investment Task Force took place in Tunis on 10 December 2021.

This initiative, led by the Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) and its local partner, the Centre International des Technologies de l’Environnement de Tunis (CITET) in the framework of the SwitchMed programme, brought together almost 50 representatives of organisations currently working in the green and circular economy sector, including Expertise France, GIZ, the European Commission, Smart Capital, Enda, and Redstart, in to discuss the possibilities of investment support for companies in the sector.

During the day’s proceedings, the task Force was also able to identify several issues as being particularly important for promoting the adoption of sustainable investment practices. Among the points identified, particularly in terms of the main obstacles to the development of green economic policy in Tunisia, were a lack of governance, followed by an inadequate regulatory framework and a general lack of awareness.
