July 27, 2022

(TAP) - Prime Minister Najla Bouden took part on Monday in the third session of the General Assembly of the African Clean Cities Platform (ACCP) held from July 25 to 29 in Tunis ahead of the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD 8), also scheduled to be held in the Tunisian capital on August 27 and 28, the Prime Ministry reported on Tuesday on its social media page.

In a speech delivered remotely, Bouden returned to the integration of 8 Tunisian cities in the African platform for clean cities, namely Tunis, Sousse, La Marsa, Al Mourouj, Al-Nour, Beni Khaled, Djerba and Tabarka, inviting other Tunisian and African cities to join this platform soon.

This platform, supported by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment and the United Nations Human Settlements Programme, aims to promote the sharing of knowledge and best practices in the creation of clean cities, to promote investment and better waste management in Africa.

The Prime Minister recalled that Tunisia has included the environment among its priorities, indicating that the government will work during the next stage to implement the actions planned in the framework of the 'Tunisia 2035 vision' which gives more importance to the circular economy and the green economy in order to fight against pollution, to promote energy control and good management of natural resources as well as to develop clean and sustainable production and consumption systems and the reduction of natural disaster risks.

ACCP meetings are held 'every three years' in conjunction with TICAD, according to the platform. The first session of the ACCP was held in 2018 in Morocco and in 2019 in Japan.
