The month of September was marked by a strong presence of PAP/RAC in Algeria. On September 11, "Destinations" project was officially launched during a meeting organised by the national Algerian partner at Sidi Fredj. This LIFE - Third Countries project has arisen a great interest of representatives of the concerned wilayas (Algiers, Boumerdes and Tipasa) and of the highest government officials of the Ministry of Land-use Planning, Environment and Tourism (MATET). At the same time, an international consultant recruited by PAP/RAC moved to Algiers to help MATET to elaborate the Terms of Reference for the Coastal Master Plan (SDAL). It was jointly agreed that the work on this important document would be associated with the activities in the framework of the EU SMAP project, and that SDAL would be the main theme of the Algerian Policy Brief to be prepared in the framework of this project. Finally, a representative of PAP/RAC took the advantage of her stay in Algiers to meet with a number of MATET officials and to discuss with them various activities PAP/RAC is leading in Algeria, such as, among others, the events which will be organised to celebrate Coast Day on October 24.
