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.

Environmental education centers were established and ecotourism was promoted.
