About biological diversity


Tunisia grants particular attention to the preservation of natural and biological resources. It has elaborated a coherent, proactive and prudent policy, conciliating between socio-economic development and rational use of these resources through the adoption of measures for a more efficient action in this area.

The state of knowledge on biological diversity and on all its interactions in the natural areas where human action is prevailing, has reached a considerable level thanks to all the studies that were conducted during recent years.

Thus, the inventory of species and ecosystems, their vulnerability, the types of threats affecting them and the information gaps that persist in some sectors, can be regarded as sufficiently well identified and are now a basic tool for achieving the goal of sustainable development.
