The ENI CBC Med program has launched MED-InA, a €2 million European project which aims at implementing a “Zero Waste” strategy in 3 municipalities: Irbid in Jordan, La Marsa in Tunisia and the selected municipality within the Ribera Region in Spain by:

  • Coaching citizens towards more responsible behaviors;
  • Coaching municipalities towards the implementation of “Zero Waste” management plans;
  • Coaching circular economy start-ups in the development of local and innovative solutions.

Cities on both sides of the Mediterranean face important environmental challenges and increasing costs to collect and treat waste, including expensive investments in landfills or incinerators. The MED-InA project proposes to develop and roll out a methodology for a “Zero Waste” public policy adapted to Mediterranean cities as an exemplary and participatory approach for waste reduction, reuse and recycling.
