“Environmental Governance and Biodiversity”

Algeria’s coastline is rich in biodiversity and ecosystems, which are of vital importance for both the local environmental and ecological diversity and the socioeconomic development of the region. One of GIZ’s projects aims at fostering sustainable coastline management to secure and conserve the resources of the region. Another far-reaching challenge Algeria is facing is tackling pollution. Naturally, these two fields of action are systemically interconnected. Consequently, GIZ is strongly involved in promoting and extending economic, social, and technological measures of environmental protection in the area.


madiba was commissioned by the GIZ to oversee their monitoring system and identify possibilities for improvement and further development of the existing mechanisms. Furthermore, our work was characterized by adherence to the KOMPASS method as well as to indicator-based monitoring procedures.
