Addressing environmental health issues in the peri-urban context : lessons learned from CIMEP Tunisia

This report on the 18-month pilot project Community Involvement in the Management of Environmental Pollution (CIMEP) in two cities in Tunisia serves two main purposes. First, the report describes the methodology which was used in Tunisia. Second, it presents a case study of the recent CIMEP experience in Tunisia that USAID officials and other donor organizations may find useful for programmes they are developing. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) initiated CIMEP, an innovative, participatory program designed to develop partnerships between national decision makers, municipalities, and communities to address the environmental health problems that plague the peri-urban poor in North Africa and the Middle East. The four main components of CIMEP are skill-building workshops, on-the-job follow-up, policymaker roundtables, and microprojects/ interventions.

Abstract

This report on the 18-month pilot project Community Involvement in the Management of Environmental Pollution (CIMEP) in two cities in Tunisia serves two main purposes. First, the report describes the methodology which was used in Tunisia. Second, it presents a case study of the recent CIMEP experience in Tunisia that USAID officials and other donor organizations may find useful for programmes they are developing. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) initiated CIMEP, an innovative, participatory program designed to develop partnerships between national decision makers, municipalities, and communities to address the environmental health problems that plague the peri-urban poor in North Africa and the Middle East. The four main components of CIMEP are skill-building workshops, on-the-job follow-up, policymaker roundtables, and microprojects/ interventions.
