Project Name:Regional Environmental Assessment Report on the Coastal Zone of Lebanon
Description:For Lebanon's Council for Development and Reconstruction (CDR) and the World Bank, ECODIT and the French Institut d'Aménagement Urbain de la Région d'Ile de France (IAURIF) prepared a regional environmental assessment (REA) of the coastal zone of Lebanon. For this six-month study, ECODIT assembled a team of international and local specialists in land use, urban planning, coastal ecology, hydrology, water pollution, air pollution, laws and regulations, and environmental economics. ECODIT identified development scenarios, described the environment, predicted and evaluated the cumulative impacts of the scenarios, compared alternative scenarios, and prepared recommendations for a Coastal Zone Management Plan. ECODIT and IAURIF prepared a Geographic Information System for Lebanon's coastal zone at the 1:50,000 scale, with more detailed information for hot spots and sensitive areas (1:25,000 scale). ECODIT consulted with government agencies, NGOs, and industry groups throughout the project.

Finally, ECODIT prepared a draft report and organized a full-day workshop in Beirut to discuss the draft report. Based on comments received during the workshop and in consultation with CDR and the World Bank, ECODIT prepared the final REA report on the coastal zone of Lebanon.
