An Amsterdam Suburb Wants to Be the Closed-Loop Community of the Future | Inverse

Why not create similar villages to house Syrians in the arid no-man's land between Lebanon and Syria? 2M Syrian refugees came to Lebanon for refuge, but the country and its infrastructure are crushed by the population overload.

He could not have imagined how his adventure in this remote and unfamiliar place would forever alter the course of the nation. The rugged landscape and strenuous life that TR experienced here would help shape a conservation policy that we still benefit from today."
