The EU meets MOUSTADAMA's beneficiaries in Gaza

H.E. the Ambassador of the European Union Representative Office in Jerusalem Mr. Sven Kühn Von Burgsdorff paid a visit to the MOUSTADAMA team in the Gaza Strip to learn about the Programme’s latest achievements and to be introduced to some of its beneficiaries and their innovative projects. 

The EU delegation had the chance to assist to a presentation of the CleanTech activities developed under the Programme’s Component 4 and to meet with the champions and finalists of the 1st Edition of the Palestine CleanTech Innovation Competition 2021. 

On a subsequent visit to the NBC Coca Cola factory located in the Gaza Industrial Estate, the EU delegation was able to learn about the energy efficiency spectrum of interventions carried out by the UNIDO team together with the trainees of the Expert Energy Management System course.

The field visit in the industrial plant offered the chance to introduce the delegation members to the energy audit conducted by the UNIDO Palestine experts and trainees, and to the awareness campaign that has been launched inside the factory to promote key energy sensitive behaviors. Finally, H.E. the Ambassador had the chance to meet the UNIDO Certified Energy Experts from the Gaza Strip, the future players of a new season of energy efficiency interventions in the Strip.

"We are delighted to show our partners the on-the-ground tangible results of our Programme," stated Ahmed ElFarra, UNIDO Senior Program Officer. "Entrepreneurs and startups in Gaza Strip, like the rest of Palestine, have been extremely active and engaged in the opportunities offered by our Programme with focus on sustainable energy for industry. We believe that, thanks to the structured methodology brought by UNIDO, it is foreseeable to multiply the benefits for the Gaza Strip's business community, and foster an inclusive and more environmentally sustainable development", he continued.
