A new project has been approved in Jordan to implement the recommendations of the ENI SEIS (Shared Enviromental Information System) South programme in the area of waste disposal. The project will be funded by the EU and implemented by the Development Agency of an EU Member State, jointly with the national environment agency.
Over recent months, the ENI SEIS II South Support Mechanism has provided technical support to assist the Jordanian government in framing one of the key policy measures of the country’s National Solid Waste Management Strategy, related to the establishment of a National Monitoring Information System for recording and monitoring the activities of the Municipal Solid Waste sector and environmental monitoring of dumpsites and new sanitary landfills.  

The support from ENI SEIS II South consisted in identifying and funding an international waste expert to conduct a mission to assist Jordan in clarifying division of labour between various ministries/institutions involved in municipal waste monitoring, and to develop the Terms of Reference of the project ”National Monitoring Information System for Municipal Solid Waste” to be funded by the EU.

The National Monitoring Information System for Municipal Solid Waste is intended to facilitate the collection and collation of data, and reporting of progress of implementation and achievement of results, to support evidence based decision-making and management.  With a budget of €3.5 million, the new aims to start in November 2017 for a duration of 20 months.
