International Joint Forum on Smart Development in North West Tunis and the Middle East

الملتقى الدولي المشترك لـلتنمية الذكية بالشمال الغربي التونسي والشرق الأوسط

Tabarka, Tunisia
14-16 April 2020


The World Commission on Environment and Development famous report “Our Common Future” published in 1987 defined sustainable development (SD) as the development that meets the needs of the present without comprising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. The entire concept of SD is about the future and the future is all about the children and youth! Youth from all-over the world are encouraged to participate in the conference and present their research, perspectives and initiatives. However, since the Rio summit in 1992 SD is increasingly becoming a concern for both developed and developing countries (DCs). Yet, translating the principles of SD into effective economic and environmental policies seems to be a major challenge for all countries. At the United Nations General Assembly meeting on September 25 and 27, 2015, 193 countries pledged to achieve 17 objectives, converted into a total of 169 goals, by 2030.

Smart Development (SMD) refers to development characterized by sustainability, and efficiency, in response to tremendous global technological developments, influenced by social, economic, cultural, scientific and educational characteristics. In this context, the SMARTDEV International Forum aims to discuss and explore various approaches and different ways which can contribute to the analysis, implementation, monitoring, evaluation, and dissemination of SD goals and objectives. The SMARTDEV 2019 Forum aims to develop a new SD model which is intelligent and decentralised. While the main theme of the conference is Smart Dev but there are other topics will be discussed during the conference such as other Development Model; Urbanisation; Development and History; Enterprise Development; Human Capital; Industrial Sector; Agricultural Sector and Services Sector.

A team of more than 20 national and international experts will lead this Forum to discuss the issue of SD, and the characteristics of a model of SD that is at the same time: new, intelligent and decentralised, in the presence of several Tunisian and foreign leaders from different horizons (Politics, Diplomat, Administration, Academy, Private, Civil Society). The Forum’s program includes: an international conference; competitions; an exhibition; an investment symposium; and a social program including tourist excursions and visits to investment projects in Jendouba region.
