Better Waste Disposal for Better Life in the West Bank
This IFC-produced video describes the pioneering solid waste management project for the Bethlehem and Hebron Governorates, and recognizes GPRBA's (ex-GPOBA) role in bringing the project to fruition. As the first public-private partnership in the West Bank (PPP) for sanitary waste disposal, this new landfill replaced many illegal and informal dumping grounds with greater health and environmental hazards. This project was designed to benefit about 840,000 residents and is expected to cut down greenhouse-gas emissions by 13,400 tons over the next few years.
