PROJECT SUMMARY

River remediation and urban development scheme

The medina of the Moroccan royal city of Fez is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. However its continuing decline threatens this prestigious title.

The project, River remediation and urban development scheme, aims to revitalize the heavily polluted and neglected river Fez. By returning to this ancient heart its dynamic soul, urban renewal and life quality will follow.
