Tunisia faces three interconnected challenges: The first is overcoming its energy crisis and unsustainable fossil fuel dependency; the second is achieving economic growth to improve people’s livelihood, and the third is moving forward with political reforms. BICC’s Policy Brief “Energy planning towards sustainability: Anchoring Tunisia’s energy transition to the local level” gives recommendations on how to relate current energy planning to the country’s political transformation processes.
The author Maurice Döring gives the following recommendations:
\         Move the energy transition forward as public development project through multi-stakeholder dialogues and policy harmonization;
\         Strengthen and include domestic expertise in policy design;
\         Integrate energy projects into regional and local development plans and assess social impacts;
\         Empower of local governments in national energy projects;
\         Move forward with decentralized electricity production.
