Since 2015, GIZ has collaborated with 8 municipalities to improve solid waste management across 4 governorates through Cash-for-Work (CfW). In order to ensure accountability in CfW, ACTED will facilitate access for approximately 1,800 GIZ beneficiaries to a confidential Complaints & Response Mechanism.

To strengthen social cohesion in the targeted municipalities, ACTED will facilitate dialogue forums, ensuring participation of the host community and Syrian refugees and raising awareness on recycling systems and waste disposal. A variety of target groups has been established for each targeted municipality (women, school, agriculture, youth, shop owners), and each target group will have up to 20 members and meet on a monthly basis to discuss recycling and environmental issues.

Lastly, ACTED will establish a post-employment referral mechanism, accessible to all GIZ beneficiaries, through which ACTED will refer interested beneficiaries to other GIZ projects as well as ILO employment centres for further employment counselling and support.
