Raising Public Awareness on Solid Municipal Waste Management in the   North-West of the Black Sea Region (Less Waste in the North West)
 

Poor waste management is one of the priority environmental problems in the countries of the Black Sea region, especially in the former ex-soviet countries. Romania and Bulgaria have made some progress in this field being obliged to do this during the accession to the European Union but at the regional and local level still there are a lot of problems.

The waste is and will be an important source of environmental pollution in the Black Sea region until the moment when concrete measures of establishing an adequate waste management system, including the promotion of separate collection of solid municipal waste, are undertaken. Some of these problems could be solved without major investments by educating population and promoting different best practices.

The project concept „Raising Public Awareness on Solid Municipal Waste Management in the North-West of the Black Sea Region” is perfectly complying within the objectives of the Moldova’s National Programme for Recovery of Waste, approved through Government Decision No. 606 of 28.06.00. The National Programme is a first trial of approaching and suggesting solutions for waste management problems, though it had been adopted before the elaboration by the European Commission of the Methodological Guide for the elaboration of Waste Management Plans.

The project has an environmental protection orientation and will offer equal opportunities for all beneficiaries. The action provided by this Project has direct links to almost all policies and strategies implemented in the Black Sea Basin, oriented at achieving stronger regional partnerships and cooperation in sustainable development of the region, pollution reduction and biodiversity conservation.

The project is funded by the Black sea Joint Operational Programme (Black sea JOP), Project № 1.2.3.65777.86_MIS - ETC 175.
