Regional – Governance and Knowledge generation Project (ReGoKo)

Plan Bleu was the implementing agency of the Project and therefore responsible for managing the Project funds and all related financial transactions. The World Bank was the executing agency of the Project and responsible for project supervision.

Plan Bleu has implemented the Regional – Governance and Knowledge generation Project (ReGoKo), financed by a $ 3 million grant over three years (2012-2015) and which has been closed at the end of October 2015.

The Project’s objective was to foster the integration of environmental issues into sectoral and development policies of Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Territories and Tunisia (Beneficiaries).

The Project concentrated its efforts on:

  1. the production of innovative knowledge on environmental issues, with specific reference to water related issues (freshwater, coastal, and marine resources), and
  2. the organization of conferences, seminars, workshops, etc. during which knowledge will be used to strengthen the capacity of key stakeholders at local, national, and regional level.

Given the demand-driven approach of the Project, Beneficiaries jointly identified the specific activities to be implemented under the Project taking into account national and regional priorities, through decisions made by the Project Steering Committee (PSC). The PSC was composed by one representative from the environment sector of each of the Beneficiaries.
