Danish Refugee Council (DRC) is an international non-governmental organization, which promotes and supports durable solutions to the problems faced by vulnerable people affected by conflict and instability all over the world. The organisation strives to identify safety and security needs.


The Ra's Ajdir border crossing between Tunisia and Libya is a major hub for civilian and commercial transportation. The traffic, the crowdedness and long waiting hours has resulted in the border crossing often being a site of tension and safety risk for communities.


This initiative aims to address the safety and security at Ra's Ajdir by facilitating cooperation between local security providers, local authorities, CSOs and community members through planting trees at the level of the border crossing. In addition to developing relationships between the aforementioned actors, the plants will create shelter for travellers at the border, and the spatial improvement of the border space may decrease tension.


For this initiative, the DRC Libya’s SSR project and DRCs Tunisia’s Borderland project are joining forces to enhance impact.
