Jezzine Natural Park
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.
