The Agriculture, Water Resources, and Fisheries Minister Mahmoud Elias Hamza, and Philippe Ankers, a representative in Tunisia for the Rome-based UN agency, signed the agreements to enhance food security and climate change resilience.

The projects are part of a 4-year framework to improve food security & resilience to climate change. Green Climate Fund aids the first project, while the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation aids the second.

The first project aims to create a National Action for the agricultural sector in water, land, crops, livestock, fisheries & forestry. It will emphasize adjusting actions and shedding light on the roles and contributions of stakeholders, including private sector partners.

The second project will collect data on social protection in Tunisia’s fisheries and aquaculture sector. It aims to reinforce Tunisian institutional capacities to enhance the quality of social benefits for fishers and workers in fishing and aquaculture.
