16 December 2014 - The Embassy of Japan concluded the signature of a Grant Contract with the Center for Development, Democracy and Governance (CDDG). The Embassy funds 70,510 US dollars for the provision of three solid waste collections cars for the district of Al Koura in North Lebanon.

The fund will cover the maintenance and the transportation of secondhand garbage collection cars from Japan. The cars will be transferred to three municipalities in Al Koura, namely Dar Baachtar, Deddeh and Kfar Akka. The project aims to support the local communities which host growing number of Syrian displaced people by improving the environmental conditions and well-being of the residents.
