Model Forest Development Workshop Held in Tunisia

On July 27-31, 2009, the International and Mediterranean Model Forest Network Secretariats travelled to Tunisia in support of Model Forest development in Tunisia’s northern mountain region of Kroumirie and the Mogods. Throughout the week the group met with various stakeholders, from government to industry and academia, to non-governmental organizations and local rural development associations. The mission also provided the opportunity to hold a first workshop with local stakeholders. A second workshop will be held in the fall of 2009.
