  1. Contexte :

The Mediterranean (MED) region is one of the world’s leading tourist destinations, which makes tourism a key driver for socio-economic progress & a key income source for many of its countries. Faced by growing competition & a deterioration of the political & security situation in the region, the destination has demonstrated symptoms of a slowdown, which makes the recovery of the sector an economic priority. This downturn may also present an opportunity to transform the tourism model into a sustainable & competitive one, addressing current sectorial challenges as the predominance of mass seaside tourism, dependence on the European market & territorial imbalances.
The MEDUSA project is led by a mix of public/private/non-governmental organizations across the region with proven track record in the tourism & business development field. MEDUSA will tackle these joint challenges via targeted & inter-related capacity building & cross-border interventions to develop & promote Adventure Tourism (AT) in the region. Between 2010 & 2014, this tourism niche grew by 195%. The MED has every opportunity to become part of this international trend, which properly managed can make tourism more sustainable, providing a strong incentive for conservation, while creating jobs & more income for local communities. These major expected changes will occur in the medium/long-term. In addition, the multiplier effect will be higher in comparison to other forms of tourism.
The MEDUSA includes the following project partners:

  • Barcelona Chamber of Commerce (Spain) – Lead Beneficiary
  • Rene Moawad Foundation (Lebanon)
  • Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry (Spain)
  • Jordan Inbound Tour Operators Association – JITOA (Jordan)
  • Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature – RSCN (Jordan)
  • Puglia Region – Department of tourism, economy of culture and valorization of territory (Italy)
  • WWF Mediterranean North Africa (Tunisia)
