During the last decade, decision makers and developers were interested to reconcile this important area with its natural environment. The aim of the Taparura project is to transform the North coasts of the town of Sfax, affected by the industrial wastes, into an urban quarter in which sources of pollution have been reduced. Moreover, this project must ensure that the town of Sfax will be reconciled with its coastline through the creation of beaches over a 6km distance and also the establishment of a urban zone covering approximately an area of 420 hectares recovered from the sea and coming partly as an extension of Sfax hyper center as a way to better reinforce add value to it. The development of such an extension is expected to be as leisure and housing zones, together with service and commercial facilities, green spaces and areas for public utilities. Relevance to the CMI urban programs: UD1--Urban expansion and renewal UD2 -- Climate appropriate urban development Date of entry: June 2010
