(Centre for Environment and Development for the Arab Region and Europe)
CEDARE is an international inter-governmental organization whose strategic objective is to promote the advancement of “environmental action for development” through investment in human capital, releasing potential creative energies with the aim of building qualified human cadres, capable of assimilating the concepts and requirements of the age, and capable of leading the development process, especially in the fields of sustainable development.
CEDARE has previously cooperated with the European Commission, international and national organizations in implementing waste management projects and research on national and regional level experience such as EC-SMAP I, "Strategic Framework for Enhancing the Solid Waste Recycling Sector in Egypt" within the METAP "Regional Project on Solid Waste Management in the Mashreq and Maghreb Countries", Urban Waste Expertise Programme - UWEP Plus, and E-waste Management status in the Arab Region.
Main role in the project
CEDARE will collaborate on setting the project framework under WP1. They will be responsible for the selection and evaluation of best practices from non OECD countries on account of their experience in the Arab Region. They will collaborate in the identification of technological and non-technological requirements for the implementation of ISWM systems and will participate in the elaboration of policy guidelines and recommendations for National and Regional Action Plans. In this sense, CEDARE will propose recommendations for the involvement of a wide range of stakeholders including those that are not frequently considered in the implementation of policy measures such as the informal sector and Micro and Small Enterprises. Moreover, CEDARE will participate in the evaluation of the changes proposed during the project time frame. CEDARE will also act as a project multiplier with the participation in symposia and conferences where IWWA results will be disseminated.
