Doueir Municipality in collaboration with the Med-O-Med program has been officially notified of the acceptance of its proposal for the project “Green Doueir Clever Doueir” funded by the European Union.
This project aims at improving the environmental health of the small town of Doueir in the province of Nabatiyeh in southern Lebanon. It is divided in two parts: the amelioration of waste management of the city and the awareness on issues related to the protection of the environment.
The waste problem in Lebanon has increased in the past years. The expansion of urbanization and the change of consumption habits of its population, have led to a situation that the government was not prepared to handle.
The awareness campaign is especially focused on children and youth of the locality, and it will develop environmental clubs, trees plantations and various training activities. Also it will implement workshops on composting, with the aim of training women’s groups in this practice, improving waste treatment and benefiting the environment and the domestic economy.
