Most of Mediterranean (MED) countries have to face the increasing quantities of generated waste. European waste management systems are often technologically different, national regulative constraints and objectives compel states to take highly complex decisions, the result is that in several Mediterranean countries proper treatment of waste remains a problem. Waste management has become a priority for many local authorities and in certain cases also for the central governments.

In that sense, the awareness that solid waste prevention and recycling help to reduce climate change impacts has been perceived by WASMAN partners as a priority topic.

        Theme of the project

The project WASMAN intends to promote synergies and disseminate good practices at transnational level among MED countries in the field of waste management governance taking into account specific problems of each partner area. The project scope is to assist municipal governments to develop a more cost-effective Municipal Solid Waste Management system (“zero waste” strategy) and to enhance local economies incentivating cost-effective initiatives of the product-chains and identifying niches for local enterprises.

The exchange of experiences between Mediterranean regions and the diffusion of good practices related to waste management governance will help to achieve territorial cohesion in order to face up environmental, economic and social challenges such as climate change.

        WASMAN’s mission
  • To establish a local waste management model for the Mediterranean region.
  • To develop a more efficient and cost-effective waste management for solid waste collection, treatment and disposal in small cities and less populated areas.
  • To improve territorial multilevel governance system on waste management, involving public and private institutions.
  • To incorporate good practices into the waste management system.
  • To improve awareness of clean environment and healthy security.
  • To contribute to the implementation of Community policy and legislation on waste.
  • Identification of good practices.
  • Launch of new recycling methods through pilot actions.
  • Raise of awareness (knowledge, methods, participation process, local pilot actions and innovative technology for and environmentally friendly solid waste management). A consumer’s handbook will be issued.
  • Encourage decision-makers to reform non-sustainable waste management practices.
