A group of representatives from the environmental department of the World Bank came to Tunisia yesterday to participate in a meeting held by the secretary of state, Salem Hamdi. The meeting covered the topic of implementing new environmental projects in the country, including waste management.

The experts from the World Bank offered help to Tunisian authorities to develop strategies for waste management operations and evaluate policies to put these procedures in place.

The World Bank representatives also offered to help Tunisian authorities create means to assess the environmental, social, and economical impacts of these activities.

The Word Bank environmental department is confident that they can provide Tunisia with the technical assistance to form a competent workforce in the waste management field.

The representatives insisted as well that it is imperative the government consider the opinions of non governmental organizations and civil societies when choosing sites for projects of waste management.
