Lebanon's National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS) launched a two-year project Tuesday to protect the marine environments of Beirut and Tyre, the most polluted and most biodiverse coastal cities in the country, respectively. The multidisciplinary project, funded by the European Union and the CNRS, intends to study the effect of climate change and pollution on the two areas.Donated by Italy nearly a decade ago, the vessel has facilitated the CNRS in a number of its projects, including a report released earlier this year on the levels of pollution along Lebanon's coastline.Jundi, who explores Tyre's waters almost on a daily basis, has unique expertise on the daily changes of Lebanon's southern seas and, as a result, will play an important role in the CNRS project.
