The UNDP/FFEM MedWet Coast project aimed at conserving the biodiversity of global and regional importance in 6 countries/ authority in the Mediterranean basin: Albania, Egypt, Lebanon, morocco, Palestinian Authority and Tunisia. Technically supported by the Station Biologique de la Tour du Valat, the Conservatoire du Littoral and the Atelier Technique des Espaces Naturels, it was financed by the national contributions of these countries as well as the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the French Global Environment Facility (FGEF).
The MedWet2 project was the second big project under the aegis of MedWet and was essentially a continuation of the MedWet1 project in five non EU member states (Albania, Algeria, Croatia, Morocco and Tunisia). The tools and methods created in MedWet1 were used and adapted and included a new component, a first approach to socio-economic aspects of wetlands. The project was almost fully funded by the EU LIFE third countries framework.
This project was done in Albania and ended in 2004. It aimed at the application of the MedWet Inventory Method in Albanian wetlands and the development of inventorying techniques using satellite image processing. Another important aspect of the project was raising awareness for wetland conservation.
