Mohamed Ouessar. (30/11/2014). Zeuss-Koutine watershed. Toronto, Canada: The United Nations University.
The watershed of Zeuss-Koutine is situated in south-eastern Tunisia, north of the city of Medenine. The region has experienced increasing anthropogenic pressure since the 1960’s, resulting in environmental degradation manifested by natural vegetation cover reduction, overuse of water resources, and poor and eroded soils. The SUMAMAD project focused on increasing groundwater recharge of depleted aquifers, rehabilitation of degraded vegetation, future land use scenarios, and alternative income generation by adding value to aromatic and medicinal plants and stimulating eco-tourism.
