Schools' District Project – Using Human-Centered Design in the Lebanon Crisis Response Plan

In early 2019, UNDP, in partnership with the Inter-Agency Coordination, initiated a project to introduce a human-centered design approach to find solutions for the waste crisis in Lebanon. Field officers went to the four corners of Lebanon to reach motivated Syrian and Lebanese participants.

This team proposed tackling the danger and repercussions of the pollution of the Litani River, which is caused by unnecessary dumping of waste in the river. The team wants to bring different communities together using a positive-thinking approach and building an awareness-raising campaign with the local youth from five neighboring schools to tackle each of the four sustainability Rs through events.
