Project on raising awareness of fishermen and farmers to prevent excess contamination of sea resources and shared aquifer in the border area with Egypt. The project will target two vulnerable communities, Farmers and Fishermen, in AlMawassi area of Rafah to promote environmentally – safe practices to prevent ground and sea water contamination. Working with farmers, the project will promote the ruse of organic and agricultural waste to produce “compost : aiming at reducing the use of chemical pesticides in agriculture. As far as the fishery sector is concerned, the project will alert Fishermen on the danger of fishing close to the wastewater discharge at the coastal area of the Mediterranean on community health as well as the use of poison for fishing.
