The GIZ supports Tunisia in developing a territorial climate change adaptation strategy for the island of Djerba. Special attention will be given to water, agriculture, tourism and coastal protection as these sectors are particularly affected by climatic changes.

For kicking-off the project, GIZ invited local stakeholders and experts to a workshop. The objective of the meeting was to identify focal areas for a vulnerability analysis of Djerba and to plan further steps. As key methodological input, adelphi presented different approaches, chances and challenges of vulnerability assessments and contributed with its expertise to the discussion of the aspects and topics the vulnerability analysis of Djerba could cover.
