In the absence of an effective solution to the nearly 15-month-old garbage crisis, the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut held a seminar Thursday to probe possible answers. University experts presented information on the dangers of the waste crisis as well as potential solutions. The mixed audience of stakeholders included heads of municipalities and local officials, environmental activists, and the AUB community. This means several municipalities can collaborate together to work on a common solution. May Massoud, a health sciences professor at AUB, added that there is no one-size-fits-all solution, and each area has unique needs. In light of urban challenges to waste management, Saliba said academic experts and civil society members can join forces to raise awareness.
