The Oasis and Ecosystem and Livelihoods Project will improve sustainable natural resources management and promote livelihoods diversification in targeted traditional oases in Tunisia. The project will positively impact the empowerment of local communities' capacities to sustainably manage their oasis ecosystems, scale up and implement sustainable land and water management practices, and effect employment and income-generating activities (poverty reduction, youth employment, creation of micro-enterprises) and strengthen community associations. Some negative impacts could occur as a result of some subprojects if some mitigations measures are not considered. This could include: 1) overexploitation of available water resources, increased use of fertilizer, disturbance of natural ecosystems, enhancement of erosion, and intensification of livestock; 2) the protection of biodiversity with the risk of introduction of imported cultivars; and 3) indirect impacts on natural resources and other natural habitats due to the influx of people adjacent to the oasis. The mitigiating factors are identified as the 1) implementation of the participatory approach from the preparation of Plan de Développement Participatif des Oasis (PDPO) to selection of activities with focus on environmental and social issues of selected activities; 2) implementation of the environmental and monitoring system that will help to address the problems and serve as a key tool for environmental awareness; and 3) implementation of support activities involving regional and national research and development including support and training of young people for careers related to palm (pollinators, scavengers vegetable).
