Project

Euro-Mediterranean strategic platform for a suitable waste management

Objectives

MED-3R is part of a context where the development is a priority in a global market characterised by the scarcity of raw materials sources and the bidding on their prices. This project aims to contribute to the reduction of waste in the Mediterranean using the triple concept 3R “Reemploy to extend the product’s lifespan, reduce the production of waste, Recycle waste”.

MED-3R sets up an institutional innovation of multi-level governance, implemented based on the strategic platform: “The Euro-Mediterranean Strategic Platform for a Suitable Waste Management” to the benefit of technical managers and experts on waste management over the Mediterranean basin.

The stake is to reinforce the cross-border cooperation based on the involvement of public authorities, social and economic actors and local populations, and to promote the development and operation of efficient waste management systems in a virtuous circle adapted to local contexts. This comes through the transfer of technical and technological know-how capacity building, the reinforcing of the expertise and the introduction of personalised guidance measures for the project’s teams.

The project MED-3R suggests innovation in approaches and services to meet with the specific needs of the beneficiary territories experiencing great difficulties in defining or implementing efficient and sustainable waste management plans. The development of management plans will be innovative and adapted as it results from a unique initiative between complementary stakeholders of the territory, through the MED-3R strategic platform.

Thus, the platform will promote new governance by an organised linking between the engineers and the elected officials in charge of waste in the Mediterranean, supported by experts from the cities networks.

New services, new management methods and more efficient tools will be provided to the cities. The platform MED-3R will become an operational reference tool to apply and adapt waste management innovations in the Mediterranean.
