RCREEE co-organizes Climate Finance "Train the Trainers" course in Tunisia

January 11, 2021 - Tunisia: RCREEE in cooperation with the National Agency for Energy Management (ANME), League of Arab states–the Energy Department and the German International Cooperation Agency (GIZ) organized “Train the Trainer” course on “Climate Finance” targeting Tunisian experts.

The three-day training course was launched Monday (January 11, 2021) with distinguished opening remarks by ANME General Director, Eng Fethi Hanchi, LAS Energy Advisor, Dr. Nouri Alkishriwi, and RCREEE Acting Executive Director, Dr. Maged Mahmoud highlighting the importance of Climate Finance for mitigation and adaptation objectives and efforts in Tunisia.

The training course allows participants from the public, non-governmental & private sectors to benefit from the extensive knowledge of the trainers, especially with regards to the different project phases: design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation. At the end of the training course, attendees will become certified trainers and accordingly support achieving national climate-related measures and long term plans.

Notably, Tunisia has taken serious steps and adopted many initiatives to support achieving its ambitious nationally determined contribution (NDC) to combat climate change by reducing emission intensity (CO2 consumption per unit of gross domestic product) by 41% by 2030 compared with 2010.  The energy sector is responsible for around 58% of the country's emissions (data from 2012) and thus plays a central role in achieving climate targets.
