Project title

Evaluation of a study on hazardous waste management in Tunisia

Project description

For the World Bank, STELLA staff reviewed a report characterising hazardous waste management practices in Tunisia and assessing the country's needs for waste management facilities. The report presents estimates of hazardous waste quantities generated in Tunisia by waste type, describes current waste management practices, and identifies existing waste management laws and regulations. Building on the pollution prevention hierarchy (from source reduction to disposal), the report develops short- and long-term waste management scenarios. The report recommends building pre-treatment and treatment facilities as well as controlled landfills in three regions. STELLA staff discussed the report's findings with the World Bank, including alternatives for implementing the report's recommendations.
