In 2014, SWEEP-Net launched in cooperation with CMI (The Center for Mediterranean Integration) a sectoral analysis on the cost assessment of environmental degradation (COED) due to municipal waste management practices in the capital cities and their agglomerations in Greater Beirut, including Beirut and Mount Lebanon (BML), Greater Rabat (Morocco), and Greater Tunis (Tunisia). The principal objective was to quantify the degradation and restauration of the environment due to municipal waste management in monetary terms. This way, the program offers decision-makers on national and local levels a basis to identify and prioritize and prioritize specific actions to improve the integrated waste management practices.
