Stability and development of the Mediterranean move by net-working: through the networks that now make dialogue possible between coastal communities, and through the fishing nets of the fishermen’s boats, working tools that share the same sea and renewable resources.
Nador, with its lagoon, its inclusion in Ramsar Convention for the conservation and sound use of wetlands and their resources since 2005, is an integral part of NEMO project and of the Mediterranean network set up by Italy through WEBPORT.
Since the beginning, Morocco has participated in the institutional dialogue that started in 2014. It has shared the new course of the Italian Cooperation and of CIHEAM Bari with the other partner countries. Today, Morocco is a pivotal hub for the “coastal community network” oriented to growth and stability. The fishing, agricultural and tourism activities performed with the competent Moroccan authorities have marked the socio-economic frame of Nador community, from local traditions to the current production and distribution chain.
