As the population in many developing countries shifts to rapidly urbanizing clusters, the sporadic collection and substandard and unhygienic disposal of solid waste looms as a major concern -- with negative effects on communities' health and environment. Despite waste collection and management's taking up a significant percentage of a municipality's budget, this vital service has still lacked sufficient funding to safely dispose of people's trash. To help funding in this sector, GPOBA to date has supported two solid waste management (SWM) projects -- in Nepal and the West Bank -- which we feature in this issue.
RBF Improves Quality of Life in Nepal Towns
Learn how an RBF approach for solid waste management helped improve health and environmental conditions in several low-income Nepalese communities, along with upgrading service providers' performance and cost recovery.
GPOBA SWM Pilots in the West Bank and Nepal
This publication analyzes the context and lessons learned in implementing RBF approaches in these two projects, the first ones in the sector supported by GPOBA.
Al-Minya Landfill Considered Regional Model for SWM
The first GPOBA-supported SWM project has hosted several municipal officials from the Middle East eager to learn about this state-of-the-art facility, a prime example of a public-private partnership in a fragile and violence-prone area. (Watch Al-Minya landfill video).
Webinar Discusses Seven RBF in SWM Case Studies
This webinar explored the application of results-based financing in several solid waste management projects, showing how it can improve collection service and waste disposal for lower income communities.
Report Examines RBF Approaches in Solid Waste Management
A joint GPOBA-World Bank report compiles the lessons learned from applying results-based financing in eight municipalities worldwide.
