Opportunities for Dutch companies active in climate and water-smart agriculture solutions.

Tunisia has been struggling with water shortages for years. With increasingly unpredictable rainy seasons and longer periods of drought, climate change is only exacerbating the problem. Because of such factors, Tunisia offers tangible opportunities for Dutch entrepreneurs engaged in climate- and water-smart agriculture to help address the challenge.

As agriculture accounts for more than 80% of water consumption, it is the country's main water user. This in turn has created market opportunities in the Tunisian sectors of inclusive agriculture, water, renewable energy, and agri-tech & innovation for Dutch companies and organisations. Because of water scarcity, the Tunisian government and companies need to rethink and work differently with the aim of becoming more efficient, economical and sustainable. Dutch innovations and solutions can play a key role in this.
