This project proposal is a result of the Inception phase which the parties had in 2015. The municipalities have decided to apply for a continued partnership within the area of solid Waste management.
The overall objective of the project is to contribute to a sustainable and cleaner environment by supporting the administration and the inhabitants to be experts in provision of sustainable solid waste management services with adequate infrastructure based on the needs of the communities through a creation of an enabling environment for stakeholder-participation.
This can be achieved by:
- Strengthening the County’s institutional capacity in planning, delivery, management of waste and technology
- Raising awareness in the need for and the benefits of sustainable solid waste management in public health, environment and economy.
- Raising awareness in the need of political will to ensure that tackling solid waste is a high priority
- Enhancing waste collection in the low-income area of Kipkaren and improving the situation of the dumpsite through acquisition of waste recycling technology
Uasin Gishu County has problems in securing land for a new dumpsite, they have looked into other alternatives and decided to engage a Norrköping based company that are experts in turning waste into electric power.
