    This NAMA aims to promote significantly greater use of Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) and Urban Green Infrastructure (UGI) approaches in Ethiopian cities and towns in alignment with the national Growth and Transformation Plan for the urban sector.

    Activities: (2016 - 2020)
    The GEF approved funding for the development and implementation of the NAMA in August 2016. In this project, the main components are:

    • The establishment of the regulatory and legal framework, institutional and coordination mechanisms, and tools for supporting the national policy environment for integrating ISWM and UGI within urban systems
    • The development of a market-based system and support to Micro & Small Enterprises (MSEs) to promote sustainable production and utilisation of compost
    • Preparation of NAMA documents
    • Integration of UGI and ISWM in urban systems, including design and implementation in 6 cities and towns (Adama, Bahir Dar, Bishoftu, Dire Dawa, Hawassa and Mekelle)

    A COMPOST NAMA will be developed with the goal of scaling-up the proposed GEF project. It includes (1) compost production using displaced landfill organic waste; (2) substitution of chemical fertilisers in urban greenery (urban agriculture, green spaces, nurseries and peri-urban forests) for compost; (3) urban and peri-urban reforestation of degraded land; (4) displacement of non-renewable fuelwood by renewable biomass generated from managed forests; and (5) implementation of the Fukuoka method for semi-aerobic landfill treatment. A Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV) scheme will also be established and linked with Ethiopia’s Cities Prosperity Index (ECPI).
