The purpose of this document is to describe the work to be carried out and the conditions, guidelines, and general technical criteria that should serve as a basis for the performance of the service. 

  1. Background 

MedTOWN is a cooperation project financed by the European Union through the European Neighbourhood Instrument of Cross Border Cooperation within the framework of the Mediterranean Basin 2014-2020 Programme. The main objective of the project is to promote and demonstrate initiatives of co-production of social policies through the cooperation of public, private and social solidarity economy (SSE) sector as well as to strengthen the role and the capacities of the SSE actors in the co-production model through a shared Community of Practice and a better regulated framework. 

MedTOWN is an initiative focused on the combined potential of agents of the social and solidarity economy (SSE), citizenship and local authorities to co-produce the social policies that can fight poverty, inequality, social exclusion and environmental unsustainability in the riparian countries of the Mediterranean basin, providing them with tools and connections to help them build local resilience and foster their transition towards becoming more fair, resilient and sustainable societies in the Euro- Mediterranean region. 

The initiative is based on Action Research to support the design of effective public policies on the provision of social services. To that effect a series of experimental actions deploying a co-production model will be undertaken and will serve both as effective modalities to increase the effectiveness of social services delivery during the project and as test-monitoring of results for policy design. 

The research and analysis will be carried out in-country and regionalized through a Regional Community of Practices and a Regional Research Group who will elaborate studies, papers, seminars, workshops and policy recommendations. A tailored communication strategy will be co-designed with the actors involved both in-country, EU and at regional level, for awareness raising and dissemination. 

The overall approach involves: 

  1. Demonstrative Actions in all Countries. B. Supporting Pilot Projects in Greece, Palestine, Jordan and Tunisia to promote joint action from civil society and local government to support local economy and decent employment, responding to unmet needs for goods and services and helping to build trust and social cohesion C. Policy support through study of country’s specific regulatory and legal frameworks, analysis of the results of the actions supported and the creation of sub-regional recommendations and 

lessons learned that will facilitate the interchange of experience during project development, the replication of actions and strategies in Mediterranean countries, and cross-border cooperation D. Monitoring and analysis of the outcomes of the demonstrative actions and pilot projects. A joint database and platform will be developed, and operationalized through the Regional Research Group to facilitate the replication, adaptation and implementation of projects and initiatives, as well as inter-cooperation between economic and social agents and institutions, and between countries. E. Multi-level communication aiming at revealing and clearly explaining, using quantifiable data and different tools, out-of-the-box approaches and perspectives that can lead to greater well- being, resilience and decision-making ability in the communities and regions participating in the project.
