(June 2010 – June 2012), Within the EU 7th Framework Programme, IWWA project proposes an alternative for the empowerment of authorities, policy makers and key stakeholders that have a role in the Waste Management chain. The project will contribute to the improvement of solid waste management systems in West Africa, by promoting appropriate management policies at national and regional levels and gathering authorities, policy makers and other stakeholders (private sector, NGOs, general public, etc.) in the design of waste management practices, with the support of African and European experts.
This initiative focuses on 4 target countries in West Africa: Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria and Senegal. The situation in these countries is representative of the overall situation in West Africa, and project results will provide synergies for the establishment of sustainable solid waste management systems across the region.
