Following the successful demonstration of a resource efficient production in Algeria during MED TEST II, the Delegation of the European Union to Algeria is launching a follow-up programme. Based on the national Roadmap developed under the MED TEST II project, scaling up activities will be undertaken to advance resource-efficient production in additional sectors, regions and companies. Under this structure, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) will soon present more detailed activities that will take place under this follow-up programme in Algeria.

At policy level, Algeria has successfully developed its Sustainable Consumption and Production National Action Plan (SCP-NAP) (UN Sustainable Development Goal 12) and is currently implementing it. For further information please visit the Algeria national policy hub.

The Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC) of the United Nations Environment Programme Mediterranean Action Plan (UNEP/MAP) provides enhanced support services for both business support organisations (BSO) and entrepreneurs to foster the creation, incubation and acceleration of sustainable business models. These services include the transfer of methodologies to the BSO and training, coaching and advisory services to green entrepreneurs, as well as activities promoting networking and access to finance.
