This project involved three wetland sites in Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia and ran from 2004 to 2006. It aimed to reinforce capacity building on a national and local level so that “wise use” of wetlands policies could be implemented.

Practically, this involved the training of the technical personnel and site managers in the management and monitoring (data collection) of the site. Environmental education centers were established and ecotourism was promoted.
