    The objective of the NAMA is to improve the waste management system in Zambia.

    Activities: (2017 - 2023)
    The NAMA aims to:

    • increase the collection and disposal of municipal solid waste up to 80% by the year 2030 in Lusaka, Kitwe, Ndola and Livingstone;
    • promote the practice of solid waste segregation so that by 2030, 90% of recyclable materials are recovered at source and the business of recycling is enhanced;
    • improve solid waste treatment, disposal and GHG emission reduction in the four selected cities through development of Mechanical Biological Treatment (MBT) and anaerobic digestion infrastructure for biogas capture to generate electricity;
    • install sludge digesters for each of the mechanical treatment plants as follows: 2 in Lusaka, 4 in Ndola and 1 in Kitwe for electricity generation.
