Djerba Sustainable Development Foundation officially launched

The Djerba Sustainable Development Foundation was officially launched on Saturday by natives of the island, in order “to safeguard and enhance its architectural heritage and make it a land of peace and cohesion”.

To achieve the objectives set out in this framework, members of the Foundation have announced the creation of an Investment Fund that will be subject to the supervision of the financial market and open to subscriptions.

President of the Foundation, Mohamed Ben Jemaa, said during a “Djerba Discovery” evening, held on Saturday in the cultural and tourist space, that the risk threatening the island because of the violation of Its nature and environment as well as the disguise of its specificities are behind the idea of creation of this Foundation.

To this end, he called on all Djerbians living in Djerba and those who are abroad to contribute to the efforts made to develop the island and preserve its assets and wealth for the future generations.

“They can also provide funding through the Investment Fund to help create cost-effective projects, realise sustainable development programmes and guarantee the urban and environmental security of the island, he added.

The Saturday meeting allowed civil society to discuss the inscription of the island of Djerba on the World Heritage List in order to promote an official and international recognition of its exceptional value.
