Nepal: Municipal Solid Waste Management Services for Urban Local Governments through RBF

Overview

Nepal Municipal Solid Waste Management -GPRBA

 

In 2013, GPRBA has developed a successful pilot program in Nepal under Window 3 that utilized performance-based grants to improve service delivery and financial sustainability in five municipalities. It builds on the success of previous GPRBA support to Nepal’s MSW sector and seeks to expand the scope of the GPOBA model, taking a comprehensive end-to-end service delivery approach that will also address institutional barriers at the local level. 

This activity conducts a deep-dive assessment of municipal solid-waste (MSW) systems for urban local governments, including identifying opportunities for establishing results-based approaches in Nepal. The activity will support the Nepal Urban Governance and Infrastructure Project (NUGIP), a $150-million lending program. It builds on the success of previous GPRBA support to Nepal’s MSW subsector and seeks to expand the scope of the GPOBA model, taking a comprehensive end-to-end service delivery approach that will also address institutional barriers at the local level.
