FOR CITATION: Salem, H.S. (2011). Pollution of Coastal Areas on the Mediterranean Sea: The Gaza Strip As a Case Study – A Real Environmental Threat and a Big Challenge. A paper given at the Working Meeting of the MIRA Project Expert Group on Decontamination of the Mediterranean (WP7) “Mediterranean Innovation and Research Cooperation Action” (MIRA). Funded by the DG Research of the European Commission MIRA and FP7, Casablanca – Morocco, 27-30 November 2011. URL: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/319391700_Pollution_of_Coastal_Areas_on_the_Mediterranean_Sea_The_Gaza_Strip_As_a_Case_Study_-_A_Real_Environmental_Threat_and_a_Big_Challenge ABSTRACT: Unfortunately we are destroying our planet – Mother Earth – with our own hands. Let us do our best to prevent, or at least, slow down or reduce this anthropogenic (man-made) destruction. This study investigates the anthropogenic pollution sources caused to the Mediterranean Sea, including construction on the coastal areas, duping of solid waste and wastewater in the Sea, etc., and the Gaza Strip in Palestine (Occupied) is taken as a case study.
