Facilitate an exchange visit between civil society organizations from Libya and Jordan. Two newly established Libyan organizations, Libyan Wildlife Trust and Oxygen, will visit Sweimeh Association Charity and other local organizations to learn about their experience in nature conservation and ecotourism. They will take a trip to three national parks to meet the different actors involved. The grantees will gain a better understanding of how to replicate ecotourism services in Libya and how to set up a successful conservation nonprofit model. The project will also create a network between Jordan-Libyan nonprofits working on similar thematic projects.
