    Mediterranean forests: Towards a better recognition of the economic and social value of goods and services through participative governance 2016
    Also available in:

    This report takes place within the framework of the regional project “Maximize the production of goods and services of Mediterranean forest ecosystems in the context of global changes” (2012-2016) financed by the French Global Environment Facility together with the German Cooperation (GIZ), the French Ministry of Agriculture, Agrifood and Forestry, and the European Union, in 5 North African (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia) and the Middle East countries (Lebanon, Turkey). This synthesis report prov ides a quick overview of the main results of components 2 (Assessment of the socio-economic value of goods and services provided by Mediterranean forest ecosystems) and component 3 (Improving Mediterranean woodland areas governance through participatory implementation and management approaches). This document also presents the lessons learned as well as the main recommendations issued in five Mediterranean countries.

    It is vital, indeed through economic assessment, to increase the visibi lity of the contribution of the goods and services produced by Mediterranean woodland areas for populations who are economically and socially dependent on these areas, but also for society as a whole. However, this can only be achieved through active involvement of these populations by managing these areas through participatory processes.

    In the context of rapid global change, it is crucial to work on these two closely linked themes in order to provide the tools needed to make necessary changes in public policies, which now, more than ever, are facing many challenges.

    Improving Mediterranean woodland areas governance through participative approaches implementation. Regional Synthesis
    Technical Report
    2016
    Also available in:

    This report takes place within the framework of the regional project “Maximize the production of goods and services of Mediterranean forest ecosystems in the context of global changes” (2012-2016) financed by the French Global Environment Facility together with the German Cooperation (GIZ), the French Ministry of Agriculture, Agrifood, and Forestry, and the European Union in 5 countries in North Africa (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia) and the Near East (Lebanon, Turkey). This publication aims to pres ent a regional synthesis of the results of the component 3 of the project focused on the improvement of governance through participative and territorial approaches implementation. The five participating partner countries have designed and tested participatory approaches and innovative governance structures for the sustainable management and socio-economic development of their wooded areas in selected pilot sites, namely Chrea National Park (Algeria), Bentael Nature Reserve (Lebanon), the Maâmora Forest (Morocco), the Barbara Watershed (Tunisia) and the Düzlerçamı Forest (Turkey). With a view to capitalizing and valuing the results and lessons learned, this report analyzes and summarizes the convergences and divergences of the various approaches in terms of their methodologies, activities implemented and results. It highlights the potential for replication of these approaches to other sites within the country or to other countries in the Mediterranean region.

    Estimation de la valeur économique et sociale des biens et services rendus par les écosystèmes forestiers méditerranéens : synthèse régionale 2016
    Also available in:

    This report takes place within the framework of the regional project “Maximize the production of goods and services of Mediterranean forest ecosystems in the context of global changes” (2012-2016) financed by the French Global Environment Facility together with the German Cooperation (GIZ), the French Ministry of Agriculture, Agrifood, and Forestry, and the European Union in 5 countries in North Africa (Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia) and the Near East (Lebanon, Turkey). This report aims to present a regional synthesis of the results of the component 2 focused on the evaluation of the economic and social value of goods and services provided by forest ecosystems. This report presents the studies carried out in four pilot sites: the Chréa National Park in Algeria, the Jabal Moussa Biosphere Reserve in Lebanon, the Maâmora Forest in Morocco and the Düzlerçami Forest in Turkey and integrates the results of the economic evaluation of goods and services of the Barbara Watershed in Tunisia, carrie d out previously. This report presents the methods used to evaluate the different goods and services in the different pilot sites, the results obtained and their analysis, and the lessons learned from these regional economic assessments.
