U S Forest Service visit to Tunisia


An October visit to Tunis was the first between the United States Forest Service and the Tunisian Forestry Department, to explore opportunities for collaboration and technical exchange. The two agencies look forward to furthering the collaboration in the areas of forest fire management, rangeland management, eco-tourism and capacity building activities related to these technical fields. A plan of action for follow on work will be developed in the coming weeks with further visits planned between the two agencies as the partnership grows.
