The World Bank’s Tunisia Country Climate and Development Report (CCDR) sheds light on the significant climate challenges confronting Tunisia, encompassing issues such as water scarcity, coastal erosion, and the escalating threat of flooding.

Published by the World Bank in advance of COP28 and aligned with national strategies targeting a low-carbon transition, the report recommends immediate adaptation and decarbonization measures. The proposed actions aim not only to mitigate the impact of climate change, but also to catalyze economic recovery and boost jobs.

By focusing on policy interventions and investment opportunities, the CCDR seeks to reduce the negative effects of climate change on people and businesses and paves the way for resilient and sustainable development. The report advocates a holistic approach, suggesting that the combination of adaptation and mitigation measures, particularly in the decarbonization of the power sector, could bring significant benefits by increasing GDP growth, reducing poverty and substantially cutting energy-related emissions.
