The Union for the Mediterranean has organized a meeting of experts and representatives of various Mauritanian, Moroccan, Algerian and Tunisian administrations. The meeting took place on July 6, 2023 at the Palau de Pedralbes, headquarters of the UfM, as the first step of several actions that will be launched in the coming months in Morocco and Tunisia, in order to promote the preservation of traditional trades related to the construction site.

RehabiMed has been invited to the meeting, to present the experience of nearly 40 years promoting the rehabilitation of traditional architecture and, as an essential part, the materials, trades and know-how that make it possible. A rich debate has made it possible to identify the shortcomings, in the different countries, and to propose realistic ways for their recovery, in certain cases, or their preservation, in other cases.
