Waste management in refugee camp

With a population of 80.000 refugees, Al Za’atari is one of the largest Syrian refugee camps in Jordan. The size of the camp poses massive challenges to the country. For example: how to proper manage the tonnes of waste this camp generates? The municipality of Amsterdam is in the final phase of writing a report on waste management and recycling in Al Za’atari. Before sending it to UNICEF en the UNHCR, Amsterdam asked me to edit the report. I have a background in environmental sciences, so I can pull this off quite easily. More news on this project in September!
