Jezzine Nat­u­ral Park

Lebanon Traveler - - NEWS -

South Le­banon’s Jezzine has been fo­cused on its tourism re­de­vel­op­ment in re­cent years and as a re­sult it’s seen a huge in­crease in vis­i­tors. Now the re­gion has a new project in the works to cre­ate a re­gional park, which has been met with en­thu­si­asm by lo­cal ac­tors in ru­ral devel­op­ment. The goal of the re­gional park, which is part­nered by the ProvenceAlpes-côte d'azur (PACA) re­gion and the Ver­don Nat­u­ral Re­gional Park in France, is to con­serve the re­gion’s nat­u­ral and cul­tural her­itage while main­tain­ing the eco­nomic devel­op­ment of the re­gion. The Jezzine re­gion has just com­pleted an es­sen­tial step in the project by draft­ing the Char­ter of the Re­gional Park, which will soon be ap­proved by the pres­i­dents of the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties.
