Project DevelopMED: ALDA fosters local development & democracy in Tunisia
On the 31st July, in the framework of the Regional Programme for Development Cooperation and International Partnership 2014-2017, the Regional Council of Friuli- Venezia- Giulia Region approved the project proposal “DevelopMED”, presented by Istituto Euromediterraneo and led by the Municipality of Monfalcone, together with ALDA as leading member of the EEIG “I Teatini”, an European Economic Interest Grouping employed as an instrument to further develop and strengthen territorial cooperation in the Neighborhood.
With a timespan of 12 months, DevelopMED aims to promote and strengthen the international and economic relations between Friuli-Venezia-Giulia Region and the countries in the Mediterranean area, in particular with Tunisia, in order to foster internationalization and democratization processes and local development.
The project, which will partly be co-founded by Friuli-Venezia-Giulia Region, is based on two linked initiatives: the delivery of a series of trainings and seminars in collaboration with the Tunisian association and ALDA member, Lam Echaml, and the organization of Forum on the relations with Tunisia and the countries of MED area, which will be focusing on the European Neighborhood Instrument, the respect of human rights and freedoms and the support to internal, self-sustainable development projects.
