About the product

The 1999 Inter-Regional Workshop on Technologies for Waste Management was organized in response to the growing needs of cities in West Asia, the Mediterranean and the Arab Region to build their management and decision making capacity in environmental management. This publication contains nine case studies from Djibouti, Egypt, Lebanon, Malta, Morocco, Oman, Palestine and Syria. They include themes of solid waste management experiences, waste water impact on fresh water resources, financing, technical orientations on landfill sites, suitable technologies, international cooperation and private sector participation.
