Component 2: Solid Waste Management (SWM) Capacity Improvements

This component is led by the Ministry of Sanitation and Water Resources (MSWR) and aims at reducing the amount of solid waste flowing into the primary Odaw channel and the ocean.  It is expected that reduction of solid waste in the channel and improvement in SWM will bring climate adaptation and mitigation benefits to communities along the Odaw Basin. Major activities to be carried out under this component includes:

  • Community based Solid Waste Management SWM interventions in targeted low-income communities including a major outreach program to sensitize and improve public behavior on SWM
  • Construction of a Waste Transfer Stations (WTSs)
  • Capping of old dumpsites,
