About WIKI PAM

Who we are ?

Wiki PAM is a cluster of many partners, all focused on the valorisation of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAPs or PAMs) in the North-West regions of Tunisia.

To see an explanation of the concept of the cluster, click here.

These Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAPs or PAMs) have many health benefits; both curative and preventive.

Why Wiki PAM

Wiki means collaboration network. This concept perfectly represents the cluster: a network of partners who – by sharing know-how and material resources – can grow together.

The acronym PAM means “Plantes Aromatiques et Médicinales” (or Medicinal and Aromatic Plants in French). The combination of Wiki and PAM gave us our name.

The project

The ACEA (Collaborative Action for artisanal exports) project is funded by a donation from the United States Embassy in Tunisia. The ACEAproject is one of social and economic development targeting artisans from North- West Tunisia. This mountainous region is particularly challenging, and means are often limited.

Indeed, poverty is prevalent and effects most people in the governorates of El Kef, Jendouba, Beja and Siliana. However, this region is rich in many other aspects, whether they be natural or human. Our artisan partners have extensive knowledge of Medicinal and Aromatic Plants (MAPs); as well as impressive know-how concerning their transformation and uses. .
