"Assessing short-term and long-term economic and environmental effects of deep decarbonisation pathways in Tunisia"
by Hamdi-Cherif, Meriem, Frederic Reynes and Gissela Landa

This paper provides a quantitative assessment of a deep decarbonisation pathway in Tunisia by 2050. Using an integrated assessment CGE model, we simulate six scenarios that considers different types of policy instruments: a significant penetration of renewables in the electricity mix, the removal of fossil fuel subsidies and the implementation of a carbon tax. All these measures have a positive effect on reducing emissions, especially when combined. The Renewable scenario provides a positive macroeconomic impact both at the sectoral and aggregated levels, while the fiscal policy scenarios trigger an economic stimulus only when the revenues generated are recycled in the economy.
