The idea that urban and rural waste are not a problem but rather an opportunity for growth for local communities, something society can take advantage of. This is the concept behind the LANDCARE MED conferences held in Lebanon the 20 and 21 of November.
The 20 of November, at the Nabih Berri Cultural Complex, Msayleh-Radar, in the South Lebanon has been held the 1st Conference of LANDCARE MED Project on Sustainable Waste Management. The event, organized by the Lebanese University, has been really useful to introduce the project activities to the population of the South of Lebanon. In fact two municipalities located in this area are at work in the LANDCARE partnership: Haret Saida and Zebdin.
The 21 of November, at the premises of the Lebanese University, which organized also this event, took place the 1st Conference of LANDCARE MED on Treatment of Rural Waste: Scientific and Capitalization Aspects. Particularly relevant the participation of representatives of International donors and project manager from other 10 ENPI CBC MED funded projects, implemented in the field of environmental sustainability in order to share results and good practices. Moreover participated at the event academic scientists from Italy, Tunisia and Lebanon.
Both the Conference have been welcomed by Mr. Hamze Jammoul from the ENPI CBC MED Joint Management Authority.
