Collaborating to align data, information and mitigation actions
With an economic and development model closely linked to fossil fuel use, Tunisia’s growth in recent decades has led to a marked increase in greenhouse gas emissions. Recognising the need to address climate change, the country has proceeded to pursue various strategies, plans and activities to promote renewable energy and climate protection while at the same time pursuing development goals such as modernising industry, creating jobs, improving quality of life and supporting international climate change mitigation efforts.
This case provides a good example of the development of well-linked national climate change strategy, NAMAs and supporting MRV arrangements. In particular, efforts to collaborate across sectors and government ministries to share data and develop effective use of information to support national inventory, NAMA development and MRV are noteworthy.
