Protected Areas in Tunisia
The main goals of Tunisian environmental policy are the conservation of ecological balance, of natural and human resources and the fight against all forms of pollution. Moreover, the Tunisian environmental policy aims at matching the requirements of progress and development with the environmental protection strategy of reducing risks threatening natural resources (air, water, soil, biodiversity) and improving the living conditions of the population. These goals are defined within a national strategy for sustainable development, according to the principles of the World Conference in Rio in 1992.
Among the institutions dealing with nature protection in Tunisia, the leading role is played by the Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources, which is responsible for the planning and implementation of a national environmental policy.
