Sustainable management of waste and employment opportunities in the energy sector in the Municipality of Irbid

The project addresses the challenge posed by the influx of the Syrian refugees and its pressure on the Jordanian host communities and environment fostering job generation and market opportunities in Amman, Irbid and Mafraq Governorates through recycling of plastic and paper thanks to the employment of Green Technology, renewable energy (RE), energy efficiency (EE) and water efficiency (WE) solutions.

The effects of Syrian crisis put a huge strain on Jordanian municipal services. such as, solid waste management (SWM), especially on the most vulnerable segments of population, in the northern part of the country. Jordan currently hosts over 600,000 Syrian refugees and the majority of them (around 82%) lives in cities and villages in the northern Governorates, outside, refugees camps. the Solid waste management system, already inadequate before the crisis, has become overstretched. According to the National Resilience Plan, an additional 340 tons of waste shall be collected daily. In particular, Greater Irbid Municipality collects 400 tons of MSW daily, transported and dumped at high costs to Al-Ekaider landfill site, an unsanitary landfill which has been in operation since 1981.
