The Regional – Governance and Knowledge generation (ReGoKo) Project, implemented by the Plan Bleu, is carrying out activities in Lebanon, to support the Ministry of Environment (MoE) in implementing the Lebanon Environmental Pollution Abatement Project (LEPAP) - a World Bank (WB) initiative. LEPAP is designed to support the MoE in establishing a mechanism that would support the industrial enterprises in their compliance to the stipulations of Decree No. 8471/2012 and to foster pollution abatement investments from technical and financial standpoints. 

Industrial enterprises are required to carry an environmental audit (EA) and set a compliance action plan (CAP) at facility level (as required by Decree No. 8471/2012) to be eligible to submit their pollution abatement projects for concessionary financing from the World Bank.

This assignment is the second assignment under ReGoKo, to foster the integration of environmental issues into the industrial sector in Lebanon and to support enforcement of existing environmental regulations by providing technical support to industries which have expressed their interest to apply for financing under LEPAP. The EAs to be prepared will provide an analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the industrial activities in order to verify their compliance with all Lebanese regulations. Moreover, the EMP/CAP will provide information regarding the needed mitigation measures, the monitoring and control program and the cost estimates of the mitigation plan.
