2021Webinar A Euro-Mediterranean Green Deal? The Case of Circular Economy in Tunisia
Date: Thursday 22 April 2021 | Time: 15h-16h30 CET
The European Green Deal commits to developing a stronger “green deal diplomacy” and specially to placing “emphasis on supporting its immediate neighbours” through “strong environment, energy and climate partnerships with the Southern Neighbourhood.” Among the pathways to advancing sustainability and decarbonisation, the Green Economy concept has gained popularity as an attempt to create more inclusive and environmentally-friendly economic development. This webinar presents the results of a EuroMeSCo Policy Study on how the EU is engaging Southern Mediterranean Countries (SMC) on green economy models in strategy and implementation, with a focus on the case of circular economy in Tunisia.
