“Fighting against school failure”, the Sousse pilot project developed under the USUDS framework,  has been selected by the Joint Managing Authority to become an “In Focus” story as part of a new set of brochures called “Mediterranean stories” that the organization has edited. These brochures are one of the key tools of the ENPI CBCMED Programme to share with general audience the tangible achievements of funded projects. 

“Mediterranean stories” are four publications that aim to highlight the challenges, achievements and tangible benefits of the 95 projects financially supported by the Programme during the 2007-2013 period, in the following fields:

  • Environmental sustainibility, which includes 38 projects dealing with water management; water treatment and recycling;  protection of the environment and natural resources; integrated coastal zone management;
  •  Economic growth and territorial development, which includes 24 projects dealing with economic growth and innovation processes; territorial development and local governance; maritime transport;
  • Cultural heritage and sustainable tourism, which includes 22 projects dealing with the management of cultural heritage and promotion of sustainable tourism;
  • Human capital, which includes 11 projects dealing with support to employment and professionalization; social inclusion.

USUDS Project is included in the publication of Human Capital projects. The experience of Sousse with the pilot project, is an example of a successful project on Social Inclusion, as well as SIDIG-MED, a project developed with the support of MedCities.  

These publications, distributed on the occasion of the NextMed Conference, were drafted in collaboration with the actors involved in funded projects.
