Realizing the fact that cleanliness has a direct impact on health, environment and tourism, the government of Japan has decided to help Yemen’s waste management.
The contribution will be a seminar to give concerned officials from different governorates the opportunity to discuss the problems of solid waste management across the country.
A Japanese embassy press notes that that under the scheme called “Grant Assistance for Grassroots Projects”, the government of Japan will give $15,500 for the two-day seminar in Sana’a to exchange opinions and experiences to make Yemeni cities cleaner and more attractive.
The seminar will discuss how to improve cleanliness among the public.
The agreement concerning this seminar was signed on Feb.2 by Abdulla Sonbol, deputy mayor of Sana’a, and Masamitsu Oki, ambassador of Japan.
Japan support solid waste management projects in many governorates, especially in Sana’a and other major cities.
