Report of the UNEP roundtable of Iraqi marshland management 21-22 September 2004
United Nations Environment Programme

The Amman Roundtable on Iraqi Marshland Management was organized by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) on 21 and 22 September 2004 in Amman, Jordan. The Roundtable was one of the initial activities for UNEPs Support for Environmental Management of the Iraqi Marshlands project, which is being implemented within the framework of the United Nations Trust Fund for Iraqi Reconstruction. Dialogue during the project preparation process, with the Iraqi counterparts, UN agencies within the UN Trust Fund mechanism, and donor agencies, identified a clear need to discuss various on-going initiatives and to facilitate coordinated response for marshland management. UNEP was requested to organize a meeting to address this need.

Lessons Learned on Mainstreaming Pilot Projects into Larger Projects
Helias Udo de Haes and Martijn van Rooijen (Leiden University), Guido Sonnemann (United Nations Environment Programme DTIE), Konrad Saur (Five Winds International), Greg Norris (Harvard School of Public Health), Olivier Jolliet (Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne)

This report summarizes lessons learned from implementing Environmentally Sound Technology (EST) pilot projects by the International Environmental Technology Centre of UNEP Division of Technology, Industry and Economics (UNEP-DTIE-IETC). The document aims to inform national level mainstreaming of the EST pilot project results, and provides lessons learned for decision-makers in national governments and for international technical cooperation personnel. The featured projects were conducted within three pillars of IETC's focal areas. They are: Support for Environmental Management of the Iraqi Marshlands project in the water-sanitation pillar||Integrated Solid Waste Management project in China, India and Lesotho under the waste management pillar||and ESTs for Building waste Reduction in Indonesia (DEBRI) project under the disaster management pillar. Each project and cross-cutting lessons learned focus on six areas, which are project management structure, governance, capacity building, EST implementation, financing, and local conditions/infrastructure.
