On the 4th of May, the ENSERES partners (ETC UMA, UNEP MAP SPA/RAC and MedCities) launched a sub-grant call for civil society and social and solidarity economy organisations in Sfax (Tunisia) and Tyre (Lebanon). This call is one of the transfer initiatives considered by the ENSERES project to showcase that ecosystem-based management activities are not against long-lasting, sustainable economic projects.

Sfax presentation

On the 13th of May in Sfax and the 15th of May in Tyre, the SPA/RAC, in coordination with the local ENSERES’ partners – Sfax City Council and the Tyre Coast Nature Reserve/TCNR – presented the subgrant call in a physical event to different local actors interested in presenting applications. Both events were opened by political representatives of the City Councils and followed by an introduction of the ENSERES project by the local coordinators. UNEP MAP SPA/RAC representative presented the call and explained and clarified the sub-granting requirements. Furthermore, in Sfax, the participants could attend a conference on the situation of the marine and coastal areas in the Sfax region by the National Engineering School of Sfax. Both events reached 50 interested participants, 30 in Sfax and 20 in Tyre.
