Beirut Governor discusses with UNDP delegation solid waste file, repercussions

NNA - Beirut Governor, Judge Marwan Abboud, on Monday welcomed UNDP Resident Representative, Melanie Hauenstein, who visited him with an accompanying delegation.

The meeting reportedly took stock of the many challenges facing Beirut city on various levels, the most important of which is the solid waste file and its repercussions on public health. 

Abboud presented the emerging facts and the substantial need to support the municipality in order to develop sustainable environmental solutions to avoid the return of trash across Beirut streets, especially in light of the impending expiration date of the current company’s contract. 

A statement issued by Abboud’s office indicated that both sides had agreed to develop an action plan in order to avoid the repercussions of the financial crisis on the solid waste dossier.
