Pays : Palestine

Durée : June 2010 // June 2013

Palestinian people’s livelihood in the Gaza Strip and their access to essential services were severely impacted as a result of the Israeli bombardment and military operations during the period December 2008-January 2009. A total of 600,000 tons of rubble was generated and more than 25,000 tons of municipal solid waste accumulated at random dump sites closed to residential areas which poses serious threats to public health. The overall situation of solid waste management in the Gaza Strip weak as a result of lack of financial and technical capacity and inadequate infrastructure for collection, treatment and disposal of municipal solid waste.
The project aims at reducing threats to public health through clearance and safe disposal of UXOs, and management of municipal solid waste including construction debris in environmentally sound manner.The project will contribute to : * Securing safe access to the affected residential and agricultural areas * Increasing access to solid waste services through primary solid waste collection rate * Extending the capacity of the 3 official dumping sites in the Gaza Strip * Generating more than 400,000 working days to the residents of the affected areas
