    You need to evaluate each player and say perhaps who is the most important, least important, has the biggest negative impact, biggest positive impact etc...

    Players cna be on a local, regional, national or international scale

    eg. The respective governments of each Maghreb country
    The foreign owned development companies involved in Plan Azur
    The residents
    Those who are migrating
    International bodies like the UN
    The World Banks and the IMF
    Other global groupings like The community for Sahel Saharan states, Arab Union, etc...
    Pressure groups
    Environmentalists
    Al Quaeda
    etc........

    etc........

    Okay thanks, that really helpful. The main difficulty is what to say about each player though and how they have an impact. I'm okay at writing about the governments and residents but finding it difficult to write about how the UN, pressure groups and the global groupings play a role.

    Any help? Thanks

    Urban populations
    IMF
    Local fishermen
    World Bank
    Local hotel and restaurant owners
    EU
    Local governments
    NGO’s
    National Governments – each of the counties outlined will have different approaches to issues IGO’s
    Armies
    French Government
    Al Queda AMU
    Airline companies
    Tourism Development TNC’s
    Easy Jet / Ryan air
    Environmental Groups

    Heritage sites

    Think about the roles each play in the reduction the development gap.
    Which are most important…..or are all important…..

    · Morocco’s tourism development strategy can
    be explored in depth at:
    www.tourisme.gov.ma/english/2-Vision2010-
    Avenir/1-en-bref/enbref.htm

    · The WWF (in partnerships with National
    Geographic) has detailed information on the
    ecoregions of the Maghreb:
    http://www.worldwildlife.org/science/
    ecoregions/item1847.html

    Also i can't seem to find North Africa's tourism trends on the tourism website
    Trends in tourism in North Africa are available
