Founded in 2000 as a non-profit making, private organization, the Land and Human to Advocate Progress (LHAP) serves as a consulting and a partner organization to influence, encourage and assist local communities throughout Jordan to ensure a better management on natural resources in a sound and ecologically sustainable manner. LHAP hosts in its office the Mediterranean Ecological Media Network (MedEcomedia), a network designed to enhance the capacity of environmental media in covering and communicating priority information at local, national, and regional. LHAP also hosts the Arab Network for Environment and Development, Jordan Branch (RAED) the umbrella for the Arab Sustainable Development the NGOs.

LHAP is comprised of major arms that work to fulfill its objectives such as the Network of Experts, Youth for Sustainable Development and Media for Sustainable Development.

In the field of education, LHAP has concluded good works with the Ministry of Education, UNDP of Jordan, General Corporation for Environment Protection (GCEP) and the Municipality of Zarqa during the implementation of Jordan National Campaign in preparation for the WSSD and the Zarqa Solid Waste Management Project. Two school drawing competitions were organized addressing students in the country to define sustainable development in the first and to mention the best ways to manage solid waste and improve collection. The first drawing competition was during the national campaign in preparation for the WSSD and the second as part of the Solid Waste Management Project of Zarqa city. The winners in both drawing competitions were translated into two posters. The Art of Waste project implemented in Jordan as part of the Mediterranean Action Day, joined forces with the Solid Waste Management Project of Zarqa, a European Funded project that includes in addition two other cities: Limasol of Cyprus and Alexandria of Egypt. Under the Art of Waste project, the first winner in the school drawing competition was documented in a poster.

The following photos display the Poster and a picture from the celebration activity which was organised on January 7, 2003.

Other school activities include raising students\' awareness about the value of agricultural waste collection and recycling, a project LHAP implemented in the Jordan Valley 150km away from Amman.
