The South of Tunisia faces many challenges, including aridity, droughts, salty waters and desertification. For those dependent on agriculture for their livelihoods, it is a daily struggle. In 2018 ACT started a new community-based rural development project in the South to help combat this, equipping communities for a better future.
Having completed the research and assessment phase in 2017, funding has been secured and Phase I is underway in the village of Ouled Souissi (Delegation Menzel Habib). Phase II will start with the selection of a second village to work alongside.
