SUSTAINABLE MANAGEMENT OF THE SOLID URBAN WASTE SECTOR IN NIGER: CASE STUDY OF NIAMEY AND THE REGIONAL CAPITALS
Sector: Urban planning
Project manager: Ministry of Town and Urban Waste Management
Estimated cost (USD): USD 118 million
Estimated cost (FCFA): FCFA 59 billion
Niger’s cities are experiencing unprecedented chronic insalubrity because of inexistent primary, storage, collection and treatment of solid waste. In Niger the collection rate represents less than 20% of the cities’ total production as Niamey and the regional capitals have inefficient solid waste management systems. This project is part of the President of the Niger Republic’s hygiene and sanitation policy called “Niamey Nyala or Niamey the charming”.
- Supply every regional town municipality with an appropriate sustainable waste management system (primary collection, collection, transport of solid waste, rolling stock, personnel protective equipment);
- Build 8 solid waste treatment and recovery plants;
- Equip regional municipalities and Niamey with dump sites;
- Reinforce the sustainable waste management capacity of the activity stakeholders;
- Inform and educate the population on best hygiene and sanitation solid waste practices.
