MED4Waste project meeting in Vic

Med4Waste is based on the capitalization of results of projects already implemented previously in the field of waste

The European project MED4Waste, coordinated by the BETA TC of the UVic-UCC and whose main objective is to facilitate new governance models for public policies on urban waste management in the Mediterranean region, held last week in Vic the first face-to-face meeting. The meeting served to follow up the project and plan the next activities, as well as to visit the facilities of the Municipal Waste Treatment Center of Osona and Ripollès, in Orís, and the pilot of community composting that the DECOST project has in Les Masies de Roda.

The Med4Waste activity, which has been financed thanks to the ENI CBC Med program, is based on the capitalization of the results of projects already implemented previously in the field of waste. These are projects financed by the program itself, including DECOST (also coordinated by CT BETA), REUSEMED, MED-InA, CEOMED and CLIMA.

Through Med4Waste it is expected to improve the knowledge available to public administrations in relation to urban waste management, especially organic waste, and new circular economy practices. This knowledge should serve to provide guidance and training to public administrations and relevant private and social actors, to implement transfer actions and to support planning, adaptation and retrofitting policies and other planning actions.

The project consortium is formed by 6 other organizations from 6 different Mediterranean countries: the MedCities Association, from Catalonia; MIO-ESCDE, from Greece; BusinessMed, from Tunisia; the American University, from Beirut (Lebanon); the EDAMA Association, from Jordan, and the Italian entity COSPE.
