The use of cleaner-burning alternative fuels, such as natural gas instead of conventional diesel in public transportation vehicles is increasing rapidly. Recent statistics reveal that that 41.3% of U.S. public transit buses use alternative fuels or hybrid technology, with 16.9% using hybridelectric technology, 16.7% using natural gas fuels and 7.4% using biodiesel (APTA, 2014).

UNDP LEAP developed and produced a documentary highlighting the work that the project provided to support and assist the 2018 Parliamentary Elections.
“The 2018 parliamentary elections were a step forward. The UNDP, with the support of its partners, will assess the lessons learned from these elections to develop the appropriate and most relevant priority areas of intervention towards achieving electoral reforms, democratic stability and participatory governance in Lebanon”, said Philippe Lazarini in his editorial published in the 19th issue of the “Peace Building in Lebanon” News Supplement.
