In partnership with OXFAM, the women’ s development group and the development association ASSAD, CAWTAR launched an income-generating practice in the field of the environment and raising women’ s awareness of their rights. This practice was implemented in the village of Oued Sbayhia, 60 km from Tunis (Zaghouan Governorate), characterised by high rates of female poverty, illiteracy and unemployment (30% and 27%, respectively). As a result of the migration of men to towns, women began to exploit natural forest resources anarchically in order to ensure a complementary income for their families.
