On 19 September 2018, the ALDA team and the ADL Tunisia delegate travelled to Tunisia to make contact with the local authorities of Kairouan. ALDA representatives met with Mr Redouane Bouden, the new Mayor of Kairouan Municipality, Mrs Rifka Kharbouchi, 3rd Deputy Mayor of Kairouan and Mrs Khaoula Hajji, President of the Decentralised Cooperation Commission in Kairouan Municipality. This first meeting with the new municipal team, set up following the local elections held in May 2018, gave rise to fruitful exchanges. The activities of ALDA in the Mediterranean and ADL Tunisia were presented and the formation of possible cooperation axes was discussed. This collaboration is particularly conceivable in the framework of the forthcoming activities of the PARFAIT project, which aim to strengthen the capacities of women and elected officials in the area of civic participation and gender mainstreaming in public decision-making processes.

ALDA and the commune of Kairouan had already signed a Memorandum of Understanding in April 2017. In order to reinforce this agreement, the Kairouan commune joined the ALDA network in September 2018 as the first ALDA member in Tunisia!
