The instability of the political situation in Tunisia is defined by a scarce democratic participation linked to the economic disparities among the different population groups. The aim of the project is to capitalise on the educational and support path to groups/cooperatives and on the interinstitutional relations developed during previous similar projects. The action, which aims to guarantee long term sustainability and seeks to optimize achieved results, is structured on three levels. Capacity building of CSOs and local authorities in order to strengthen their strategic planning and project management skills, identification and implementation of projects to test new mechanisms of local governance and accountability, reduction of land conflicts through the use of inclusive mechanisms of participation at a local level.
