Why should your company go to Tunisia and Morocco?
 In Tunisia, the most pressing current issues in the environmental sector are in the fields where there is leading Finnish expertise. Waste management and water treatment are growth sectors in the Tunisian modernization projects with funding opportunities from the EU as well as International Development Banks.

A Memorandum of Understanding between Finland and Tunisia in the field of environmental cooperation offers a platform to support Finnish businesses in finding opportunities, partnerships and funding.

Finnish cleantech services and solutions can find demand in Morocco that aims to produce 52% of its energy needs through renewable energy by 2030.

Rapidly expanding cities with little urban planning create demand for improved waste management across Morocco. The management of the 80 million m3 of domestic liquid waste generated each year remains a serious issue. Hazardous waste from industrial and medical sources is a serious environmental and health risk due to lacking capacity of hazardous waste treatment and disposal plants. Regarding future investments, Morocco is planning to build 27 new waste treatment and sorting facilities.

Morocco's natural water resources are estimated to be among the lowest in the world, and the phreatic groundwater is draining off with an alarming rate of 860 million m3 per year. Morocco needs to develop further efficiency of water use, since agriculture alone engulfs 88% of the country's water resources. LEARN MORE
