Turkey Resilient Landscape Integration ProjectBolaman Basin Rehabilitation Project

Turkey faces environmental challenges including soil erosion, land degradation, and desertification due to factors like improper agricultural practices and rapid urbanization. Despite afforestation efforts, 43% of forest cover is degraded, and biodiversity is threatened by habitat loss. Water scarcity affects half of Turkey's river basins, with some facing absolute water scarcity. Natural disasters, including earthquakes, floods, and landslides, cost the country significantly each year. Climate change exacerbates these challenges, with increasing temperatures and altered precipitation patterns. The Turkey's Resilient Landscape Integration Project (TULIP), funded by the World Bank, aims to address these issues by strengthening integrated landscape management and improving rural livelihoods in selected sub-basins. This project involves investments to mitigate natural resource degradation, water insecurity, and climate risks, implemented by various government agencies.

Preparation of Integrated Solid Waste Management Plan of Bursa Province within the scope of CirculaMare Project Baseline Study in the Mediterranean - Assignment of Plastic (Micro Plastic) Waste Disposal Measures in 3 Pilot Districts

To combat the negative impacts of the drastically increasing amounts of plastic waste in the Mediterranean Sea, the Alliance to End Plastic Waste (Alliance) has joined hands with the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH to support the reduction of plastic waste entering the environment in eight countries across the Mediterranean region, Albania, Algeria, Egypt, Greece, Kosovo, North Macedonia, Serbia and Turkey. The project “CirculaMare” is designed to address plastic waste pollution across the Mediterranean region. It focusses on urban areas as population and waste generation hotspots at the Mediterranean coasts, on islands and along rivers in the region. The project develops innovative solutions tailored to the specific local plastic waste challenges through nine individual demonstration projects, adapted to the regional and national context. Combining the learnings and results of all demonstration projects in a plastic waste management toolbox, scalable and economically viable solutions are developed and disseminated for cities across the Mediterranean region. The regional approach within this project will be interlinked with existing initiatives on plastic waste management in the Mediterranean to exchange learnings, coordinate an aligned approach and increase the impacts of all initiatives
