The project WASTE or RESOURCE – Enterprises and municipalities’ environmental and social responsibility”, which will last 36 months, was proposed by CELIM together with Cesvi and Oxfam Italia, as ATS members, Oxfam GB, Ingegneria senza Frontiera Milano e Politecnico di Milano, as international or Italian partners, and the Municipalities of Hasbaya and Chebaa, as local partners. The project has the overall objective of contributing in reducing the negative impact on health and the environment caused by air, soil and water pollution and contamination in Lebanon, in accordance with SDG 3.9. This impact will be reached developing, in 3 years, models of environmental and social responsibility with particular reference to the management of municipal solid waste in the Governorate of Nabathiye and the South for 12 municipalities and 20 MSMEs and a total of 42,056 direct beneficiaries (specific objective). This objective will be achieved thanks to the accomplishment of 3 results: the solid waste collection, treatment and disposal systems have improved in 12 municipalities in the Hasbaya district (R1; R2); productivity, innovation, sustainable production and consumption and creation of decent jobs are promoted for 20 MSMEs in the waste value chains in the districts of Hasbaya, Saida and Tyre (R3). R1: to respond to the problem of insufficient or poor quality separate collection, a separate collection management system will be introduced in Hasbaya and Chebaa, the two largest towns in the district, and the separate collection plan, already present in Rashaya Al Foukhar, will be revised. The new plans will be codesigned, implemented and monitored, ensuring both adequate technical and management training and the supply of vehicles and containers. In order for the separate collection systems to work, an awareness campaign will be designed and implemented for the correct separation and disposal of waste at domestic and commercial level. Finally, separate collection plans will be developed and presented and peer to peer trainings will be organized for the 9 municipalities not involved in the implementation of the service to ensure that they will have all the tools to implement the plans. R2: to improve waste treatment, which is currently insufficient, 3 composting centres in Hasbaya, Chebaa and Rashaya Al Foukhar and 2 recyclables sorting centres in Hasbaya and Chebaa will be built. The centres will be designed, built and equipped with the necessary machinery; the operators will then be trained at a technical and management level and a management model and system for monitoring the functioning of the centres will be developed; finally, an endowment fund will be established for the start-up of the Hasbaya and Chebaa centres. To improve waste disposal, which is currently inadequate, the environmental impacts of the existing open dumpsites in Hasbaya, Chebaa and Rashaya Al Foukhar will be mitigated: the waste already present will be contained and covered and new lots and plans will be prepared for the controlled disposal of unsorted waste; dumpsites operators will be trained and monitored to correctly implement the new procedures and analyses will be carried out to assess the environmental impacts. Finally, treatment and disposal plans will be elaborated and presented for the 9 municipalities not involved in the implementation of the services and training and exchange meetings between the municipalities will be organized. R3: to respond to limited and polluting production systems, characterized by a scarcity of sustainable investments, the 20 selected MSMEs will be economically supported with three disbursements of monetary contributions, subject to a selection and verification process of the feasibility of the development and business plans drawn up by them. read more close
