Tunisia : Support to CITET Development

As part of the twinning agreement, led by the French Ministry of the Environment, between the European Union and the Tunisian Ministry of the Environment and focusing on institu - tional support in the field of environmental protection and sustainable development, IOWater, in 2013 and 2014, provided support for strengthening the International Center for Environmental Technologies of Tunis (CITET).
 
In a first phase in 2013, experts from IOWater contributed to establish a strategic assessment (SWOT analysis, benchmarking, competitive positioning, etc...), define areas for strategic development, develop a business development plan for ”CITET” and organize a study tour in France.
 
In 2014, IOWater accompanied ”CITET” on operational actions with experts’ missions to:
  • Coach ”CITET” teams on pollution removal in industrial effluents (sugar refinery...);
  • Support the establishment of a training process (training reference frames, jobs, assessment and certification) on the topic of ”Sampling and flow measurements of industrial wastewater”;
  • Assess and support ”CITET” Documentation Service (weekly newsletter, web content management...).
