November 17, 2021

TAP)- A new European project designed to promote sustainable tourism in Mediterranean countries launched on October 13-14 in Barcelona, Spain.

Restart Med is a two-year project funded by the European Union as part of ENI CBC MED Programme. It is aimed to promote sustainable tourism initiatives in target Mediterranean countries, namely Tunisia, Italy, Jordan and Lebanon, and the launch of a Mediterranean sustainable tourism label.

The project, which is premised on a comprehensive and integrated approach, covers adventure tourism, slow tourism, culinary tourism and cultural tourism in a bid to widen the sector's horizons.

Helping tourism, one of the pandmic hardest-hit sectors, is another objective of Restart Med in addition to cushioning the impact of the health crisis and meeting the challenges of sustainability and digitisation.

The 1.1-million- euro project is implemented in target countries by local partners, mainly the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) North Africa office in Tunis, the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce (BCC), the Catalan Tourist Board (CTB) in Spain, the American University of Beirut, the Jordan University of Science and Technology (JUST) and the International Committee for the Development of Peoples (CISP).
