AMMAN — Energy, water, and environment experts discussed challenges facing Lebanese municipalities in natural resource and waste management in a bid to expedite economic growth in the country, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

The “Policy Dialogue for Climate” was organized by the Royal Scientific Society (RSS), as part of the Model of NEXUS Approach and Renewable Technologes (MINARET) regional project on the Water, Energy, and Food Nexus.

The project aims to enable municipal governance to achieve climate resilience through the Nexus approach, a concept that describes the complex and interrelated nature of global resource systems.

A RSS statement on Wednesday said representatives from Lebanese public institutions, municipalities, civil society organizations, and ministries participated in the event, in addition to experts in energy, water, and the environment, as well as agents from the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia.

The conference introduced participants to the MINARET project and the municipal challenges in combating climate change through a review of local laws and an appreciation of the municipalities’ role in development in terms of financial monitoring, administration, and resources governance.

The second phase of the MENA Region Initiative MINARET aims to address the MENA region’s unique sustainability challenges and opportunities by increasing local and regional sustainability capacities through synergies between renewable energy technology and efficiency, water management, and food security.

It is funded by the German Agency for International Cooperation and the EU

The four-year project kicked off in the first quarter of 2017 in Jordan, Tunisia, and Lebanon. اضافة اعلان
