he objective of this Technical Cooperation (TC) project is to assist the Government of Egypt in developing a national programme to address hazardous waste issues and identifying a commercially and technically viable hazardous waste management model along with a business case for a pilot hazardous waste management project that could potentially attract funding by IFIs. In order to achieve such objectives, the existing hazardous waste management provisions in Egypt will be identified and assessed and relevant improvements recommended and potential commercial models for hazardous waste management identified.

(a) Raise the awareness among the governorates, businesses and communities of potential adverse environmental, health and safety impacts and risks of improper hazardous waste disposal;
(b) Increase knowledge and understanding of relevant EU Directives and Reference Documents for Best Available Techniques for Waste Treatment and Waste Incineration and international best practice for management of waste;
(c) Promote good industry practice and advanced municipal policies in managing waste by showcasing a number of examples from the EU countries and EBRD’s countries of operations;
(d) Assist in developing hazardous waste management programme and approach;

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF EBRD
The Project Complaint Mechanism (PCM) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD)-financed project. If you submit a complaint to the PCM, it may assess compliance with EBRD's own policies and procedures to prevent harm to the environment or communities or it may assist you in resolving the problem that led to the complaint through a dialogue with those implementing the project. Additionally, the PCM has the authority to recommend a project be suspended in the event that harm is imminent. You can contact the PCM at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can submit a complaint online using an online form, http://www.ebrd.com/eform/pcm/complaint_form?language=en. You can learn more about the PCM and how to file a complaint at http://www.ebrd.com/work-with-us/project-finance/project-complaint-mechanism.html.
