Jordan Zero Carbon
July 2020
July 2022

This two-year project aims to reduce the adverse impact of solid waste on the environment and support the economic development of Sahab Municipality, Amman, by building a Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) sorting centre on municipal land. The MSW sorting centre will be managed through a public-private partnership, contributing to its sustainability. Moreover, ACTED will promote and disseminate knowledge on sustainable waste management practices in two targeted neighbourhoods in Sahab. The 54,891 inhabitants of these two neighbourhoods will directly benefit from the project, whereas all 182,970 inhabitants of Sahab municipality will indirectly benefit socially, economically and ecologically as the environmental pollution and garbage in the area will be reduced, and job opportunities will be created for area citizens.
