GabAs: Steering committee of project to support environmental governance of industrial activities convenes

The steering committee of the project to support the environmental governance of industrial activities in Gabes (PGE-GabAs Project) convened Tuesday at the governorate’s headquarters to review the progress of the project components financed by the European Union for 5 million Euros and carried out by the French agency of international technical expertise (Expertise France), in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and Southern Development Office.

The studies of the impact of pollution on the health of citizens carried out in this connection have made it possible to define the basic references necessary for any research in this field.

Studies on the impact of industrial pollution on the regional economy are being finalised.

Six industrial companies in the region have been supported by international experts to ensure that they are committed to social responsibility in accordance with international standards.

Besides, a local consultative body for sustainable development was established to bring together all stakeholders in the region to discuss sustainable development issues.

The four-year PGE-GabAs Project (September 2014-September 2018) contributed to the financing of nine projects to improve local development and environment in the region. These projects concern, in particular, the protection of biological diversity, promotion of oases and control of air pollution. A forum on the upgrading of phosphogypsum in agriculture, construction and road infrastructure was organised in this connection.
