Tunisia is undergoing a transition to democratic governance in the wake of the events on 14 January 2011 and passed a new constitution in January 2014. There are some humanitarian issues in the country, mainly related to the gap between strong migration pressure and limited legal migration channels. Tunisia has rapidly become a migration and transit country, with migrants coming mainly from the Maghreb and from Sub-Saharan Africa with the aim of reaching Europe through irregular migration.
Tunisia is also prone to natural disasters, particularly floods, earthquakes and droughts. During the past few years, different regions of Tunisia have suffered from floods.
OCHA ROMENA has been working with the UN Country Team in Tunisia and the government to support and provide technical expertise on emergency preparedness activities such as contingency planning and Minimum Preparedness Actions (MPA), a tool that helps identify preparedness gaps in the country and ways to address them.
