|Civil society actions to
improve the environment have been supported by SEAM through the implementation
of community projects in village sanitation, solid waste management and
environmental education and awareness. So far 14 projects, addressing GEAP
priorities have been completed. A further 50 projects are planned across
the four Governorates in the same fields plus water supply, natural resource
management and agricultural practices.
The capacity of Non Government
Organisations (NGOs) and Community Development Associations (CDAs) will
be strengthened to articulate the needs of poor communities into viable
and sustainable interventions. SEAM support will be directed to deprived
areas. Participatory monitoring will be used to assess the impacts of projects
on people's livelihoods, levels of cost recovery and economic impacts.
