About the MEDOMED (Islamic Culture Foundation)

With the Network of Botanic Gardens in the Mediterranean and Middle East, which forms part of the programme entitled MEDOMED, Cultural Landscapes of the Mediterranean and Middle East,the Islamic Culture Foundation seeks to recover the scientific and conservationist spirit that is inherent in Islamic culture.

The project, which is already under way in various countries in the Mediterranean area, focuses on two aspects: rehabilitation of historic gardens dating from Islamic times or which are architecturally and botanically Islamic in style, and the recovery of abandoned historic botanic gardens. It also covers the creation of new botanic gardens fulfilling the same requirements, as well as collaboration and the sharing of information amongst existing botanic gardens.

These projects go hand in hand with activities to promote understanding, conservation, education and training.
receives the support of the Spanish Ministry of the Environment, the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation and the Spanish National Plan for the Alliance of Civilisations.
