In the last two years, CEPF has supported the capacity building of five organizations in five different priority KBAs in Northeastern Tunisia in order to create an eco-tourist trail in the region. This project aims to optimize and promote the final product of CEPF-AAO. The final circuit will be identified and tested. The required period of visit, accommodation at each site proposals, and suggesting places to provide local products will be identified.

By the end of this project the circuit will be adopted by National Tourist Office and shared with tour operators and travel agencies in Tunisia.
