Finding better solutions for Gaza's waste

6 years ago14 views

For years Gaza's sewage system has been close to collapse.

Beaches along the Strip's 40km of coast are heavily polluted by waste being pumped directly into the sea - 14,000 cubic metres of it per day.

And the people who depend on the Mediterranean for their livelihoods are the ones who suffer the most.

Al Jazeera's Nicole Johnston reports from Gaza.
