A Memorandum of understanding (MoU) was signed in Gafsa, Tunisia on 13 December 2022 in the framework of SUPROMED project between the Agency of agricultural guidance and training (AVFA), institute of Agricultural Research and Higher Education (IRESA) and National Institute for Research in Rural Engineering, Water and Forestry (INRGREF) Tunisia.
IRESA, AVFA and INRGREF will initiate, stimulate, and support joint project that fit with the scope of SUPROMED project.
From 17 to 19 November a SUPROMED workshop was held in Tunis, Tunisia under the title “Socio-economic and environmental impact of SUPROMED project at regional level (demosites) and at Mediterranean scale under various scenarios of irrigation water availability due to climate change”.
The workshop was organized by SUPROMED Tunisian partners INRGREF and INGC, the project coordinator UCLM Spain and project partners SEMIDE (France) and DIFAF (Lebanon) participated in the event. During the event, partners presented the socioeconomic results of the project in the 3 countries (Spain, Lebanon, and Tunisia). In addition, partners have presented extrapolated results of the project in other Mediterranean countries not involved in the project as Algeria and Morocco. Also in order to increase the knowledge transfer between Mediterranean countries an expert on socioeconomic analysis from IAV Morocco participated in the event and took part in the workshop discussions
