As part of the Water and Environment Support (WES) project in the Southern Neighborhood region, a National Activity focusing on ‘Revision of sectoral guidelines and Emission Limit Values for industrial activities in Lebanon’ (N-E-LB-1) was tailor-designed and delivered to provide technical assistance to the Ministry of Environment (MoE) of Lebanon on the prevention/abatement of industrial pollution, from March 2021 to September 2022.

WES proposed revisions and comments to the MoE’s environmental guidelines for the establishment and operation of specific industries within the food and construction sectors.

Moreover, the MoE having developed new wastewater standards under the Lebanon Environmental Pollution Abatement Project based on European Union, other national and regional regulations and standards, requested WES to make similar proposals.

We are pleased to share with you the WES Information Bulletin, to give further details to stakeholders on how the team of WES Environment Experts organised this National Activity.
