Environmental Infrastructure in the Gaza Strip (GS) is a multidisciplinary sector related to provision of basic services of water supply, waste water, storm water drainage and solid waste disposal. The emerging institutions of the Palestinian National Authority (PNA) are facing problems managing the e poor physical facilities of the environmental infrastructure. The thesis assesses the current status of the environmental infrastructure in the GS within the context of designing a conceptual, sustainable and integrated Environmental Infrastructure Management Model (BIMM). This is the core of the research, which aims at making a contribution towards understanding and assessing Environmental Infrastructure Management (EIM) including the links to, and mandates of, the institutions involved in EIM tasks. In this context, Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is introduced as a vital integrating element for EIM institutions.
