Partners: Municipality of Thibar / Association of civil society of Thibar
Implementation: Tunisia
Project duration: February 2017– January 2018

Elaborating a sustainable urban plan for Thibar, is a project that aims mainly to reconcile Thibar’s territory with sustainable development by enhancing community’s life conditions, promoting economic growth, and preserving its natural resources as well as cultural heritage. By adopting a participatory approach, the project will help civil society (citizens included) as well as public stakeholders to enhance and adopt good practices in matter of decentralization and good governance. The project intends to highlight the competences of landscape architects and engineers and therefore enlarge their horizons and those of decision makers.

The social survey to assess the vision and the needs of the community, the different workshops to reconcile between the various stakeholders and the elaboration of the sustainable urban plan are the most important activities of the project.

TALAE is a professional association aiming to promote landscape architecture in Tunisia through 4 working areas:

  • Landscape architecture and collective memory
  • Landscape architecture and environment
  • Landscape architecture and development
  • Landscape architecture and society

TALAE is leading this project with the partnership of the Municipality of Thibar and the Civil Association of Thibar.
