The Sahara of Cultures and People

Language: English
Available in:»English»Français

The Sahara, common space to ten States - Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco,

Niger, Sudan,Tunisia -, is characterised by a rich cultural, human and natural wealth, and a great fragility.This

includes the cave paintings, Ksour and old cities, traditional music, a unique tangible and intangible heritage, magnificent landscapes ranging from dunes, mountains and oasis, and a rare and diverse flora and fauna.

This heritage is threatened by modified ways of life, urbanisation and desertification, among others, and requires more attention and measures to safeguard and manage it appropriately.

This film was made during the international workshop "The Sahara of Cultures and Men. Towards a Strategy of Sustainable Development or Tourism in the Sahara"

There is also a documentary about the Project that resulted out of this workshop ((consult it here) )
