Call For Proposals: Improving Waste Management and Promoting Renewable Energy in Monrovia, Liberia

 

The Cities Alliance Liberia Country Programme  has launched three innovative funding opportunities, funded by the European Union, that target Liberia’s urban poor settlements to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through sustainable energy initiatives and solid waste management. The funding opportunities fall under two projects implemented by the Liberia Country Programme on solid waste management (SWM) funded by the European Union that are helping communities develop lasting capacities to collect primary waste and piloting innovative waste-to-energy approaches.

Now in its second year of implementation, the EU-funded Solid Waste Management projects have led to improved coverage and effectiveness of SWM through Community Based Enterprises (CBEs). It has also improved awareness of climate change and climate-resilient SWM in informal settlements. In 2019, Cities Alliance completed three feasibility studies that established a baseline and diagnosis of the SWM sector in Greater Monrovia, including the CBE system, and assessed composting and recycling initiatives. By the end of 2019, 30 CBEs in the primary waste collection system were fully operational with reinforced proficiencies in good practice, human resources, and financial management. Since the start of the activity, the number of communities with waste management coverage by CBEs has increased by almost 150%.
