    This workshop is part of the technical assistance that is being provided to the city of Sfax regarding the management of waste in the Medina. This technical assistance is undertaken in the framework of the project for the consolidation of the KTCs undertaken by MedCities, in collaboration with the Center for Mediterranean Integration (CMI) and with the financial support of the Center’s Multi Donor Trust Fund.


    The technical assistance includes the elaboration of a diagnosis and an action plan for the implementation of waste management structures in the proximity of the Medina, which was carried out in a participatory way, engaging all stakeholders and users of the Medina. The findings of the diagnosis will be presented at the workshop, together with a strategy and action plan for the waste management in the Medina and will be put for discussion with local and national stakeholders. In that matter, the workshop aims to enrich the proposed options for the introduction of a modern waste management system in the Medina of Sfax. It also aims to reinforce the commitment of all stakeholders in the implementation of a recycling center in the Medina of Sfax.
