Um Zaitouneh Park/ Rehabilitation of the Old Waste Disposal Site in Salt
Um Zaitouneh Park/ Rehabilitation of the Old Waste Disposal Site in Salt
Replicating a successful experience implemented by the Productive Women Cooperative in Marka where they rehabilitated the oldest solid waste disposal site in Amman into a park, the Jordanian National Forum for Women will implement the "Um Zaitouneh Park/ Rehabilitation of the Old Solid Disposal Site in Salt" project. In an area that evidently used to be a natural forest, the site is located south west of Salt overlooking the Jordan Valley and mountains of Palestine. The Forum, with the full support of the Municipality of Salt, will rehabilitate the site giving the chance to the natural plant cover to be revived. It will establish a recreational area for children where they can enjoy nature without damaging it, and will conduct public awareness activities targeting the Forum's members and members of the local community.
