Chaired by Mrs. Saloua Hsoumi, Director General at the Ministry, the meeting brought together with Ms. Sameh Benfguira, Clima-Med Focal Point, the NCG members representing many Tunisian institutions operating in the field of energy and climate.
Along the meeting, Clima-Med experts recalled the objectives and main components of the Project namely the integration of national climate policies, the development of SEACAPs and the development of a financing strategy. They presented the outline of the project roadmap framing the NCG’s commitments as well as an action plan of the stages of the whole project which were approved by the participants and introduced the participants to the development of the National Policy Coordination Strategy and funding mechanisms.
