Abstract: Launched in Europe in 2008, the Covenant of Mayors initiative came into being to support the efforts of local authorities in tackling climate change. Upon its wide endorsement in the region, the model was expanded to others, including the Southern Mediterranean. This report is a part of series of papers that analyse and highlight best practices in the Covenant Community and reviews Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs from 7 countries – Algeria, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, the Palestinian Territories and Tunisia. The main findings are organised around the 10 principles of the Covenant of Mayors of the JRC Guidebook “How to develop a Sustainable Energy Action Plan (SEAP) in South Mediterranean Cities”. The analysis shows a good compliance with the same and highlights the challenges linked to technical capacities at the local level, the insufficient financing and the sustainability of the action. The report concludes with a selection of best practices made from the planned actions and governance models of the selected SEAPs.
