In 2001, Algeria agreed to make significant waste management efforts. A set of legal regulations and strategies was adopted to improve performance in this respect.
Belgium supported this process and, more in particular, the development of an integrated waste management system. This included organisation of waste collection, exploitation of facilities, technical management of equipment, awareness-raising of households. The partners we worked with are the National Waste Management Agency and the actors of three wilayas (provinces): Mascara, Mostaganem and Sidi Bel Abbès. .
