SWEEP-Net Papers & Reports
In early 2014, SWEEP-Net launched in cooperation with CMI (The Center for Mediterranean Integration) a sectoral analysis on the cost assessment of environmental degradation (COED) and remediation, due to municipal waste management practices at the capital cities and their agglomerations in Greater Beirut (Lebanon), Greater Rabat (Morocco), and Greater Tunis (Tunisia). The principal objective was to: (i) assess the legal, institutional, regulatory and financial framework; (ii) quantify the degradation and remediation of the environment due to municipal waste management practices in monetary terms; and (iii) assist decision-makers at national and local levels to identify and prioritize specific actions to improve the integrated solid waste management (SWM) practices. Three COED reports were respectively prepared and discussed at a joint meeting with the three countries’ representatives at CMI in Marseilles on April 23-24, 2014 and subsequently presented at the SWEEP-Net Fourth Regional Forum in Amman in May 13-14, 2014.
