A workshop on rural craftswomen awareness and territorial intelligence was held on 3 November in Ain Temouchent, Algeria, in the framework of the EU-Algeria pilot programme for Rural Development and Agriculture (PAP-ENPARD Algeria). The event brought together associations from different provinces: Ain-Temouchent, Tlemcen, Tizi-Ouzzou, Bejaia and Bechar and the EU-funded programme partner institutions.

PAP ENPARD ALGERIA is a bilateral cooperation programme between Algeria and the European Union, initiated in the framework of the European Initiative ENPARD. Based on an innovative approach to revitalize the territories through sustainable development projects, PAP-ENPARD contributes in the pilot provinces to:
implementing a participatory process to identify sustainable rural development projects;
showcasing local products and resources and enhancing their quality before bringing them to market;
reinforcing the communication and information on the entrepreneurial initiatives of local actors.
