Hebron Mayor Khaled Osaily met on the 10th of January  at Hebron Municipality with Laurence Carter, IFC Director for  Infrastructure Advisory Services, Youssef Habash, IFC Country Officer  and several IFC staff from Egypt, Dubai and Jordan.

Hebron Mayor Khaled Osaily met on the 10th of January at Hebron  Municipality with Laurence Carter, IFC Director for Infrastructure  Advisory Services, Youssef Habash, IFC Country Officer and several IFC  staff from Egypt, Dubai and Jordan. The meeting aimed at discussing the  progress of the Development Study for the Solid Waste Management Project  in Hebron and Bethlehem Governorates implemented through the Joint  Council for Solid Waste Management in the two Governorates.

The  Southern West Bank Higher Joint Services Council for Solid Waste  Management had previously signed with IFC an agreement for the launching  of a Development Study for Solid Waste Management with Private Sector  participation for a total of 800 000 USD.

After welcoming his  guests, Osaily made a detailed presentation on economic conditions in  the oPT in general and Hebron Governorate in particular. He underlined  the importance of support from and partnerships with the private sector  given the great role it plays in achieving development, ensuring  sustainable development and creating job opportunities for recent  graduates as well as for those made redundant because of occupation  policies and the political situation in the oPT.

In reply to a  question about potential Public-Private Partnerships in Hebron  Governorate that would serve the public good, Osaily said that waste  water management and housing projects are two fields where such  partnerships would succeed if additional international support is  provided. Another potential field is the creation of industrial zones  that would attract investors to the oPT, he added.
“A major obstacle  hindering several vital projects in the Governorate is the lack of land  suitable to host these projects. Around 60% of Palestinian land remains  under Israeli administrative and security control, and using this “C”  area land requires special permits from the Israelis.

At the end  of the meeting, Carter reiterated IFC’s desire to cooperate effectively  with Hebron Municipality and the Higher Council as well as to expand  current cooperation to include additional projects and fields.

Before  leaving the city, the delegation visited Hebron’s Old City in order to  get better acquainted with living conditions there, mainly in friction  zones, around settlement outposts and near Al Ibrahimi Mosque.
