The project

MedUp! – Promoting social entrepreneurship in the Mediterranean region aims at increasing economic inclusiveness and employment by promoting social entrepreneurship in Morocco, Tunisia, Jordan, Egypt, Palestine, and Lebanon as a driver for inclusive growth and job creation.

The project’s actions (2018-2022) focus on:

  • Promoting policy and advocacy initiatives and public-private dialogue, to create an enabling regulatory and policy environment,
  • Reinforcing 60 social entrepreneurship support organisations through capacity-building and networking
  • Providing financial and technical support to 100 social enterprises.

The partners

The project is led by Oxfam Italy, co-funded by the European Union, and implemented by a consortium of European and Southern Mediterranean co-applicants.
