    Exploits the joint responsibility of local authorities and residents or persons working in these urban areas of Kampala City to contribute to waste management using the 3Rs. The focus is to reduce waste generation and improve waste collection, recycling and reuse. The NAMA will target the 60 per cent of solid waste in Kampala that is not collected by the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA).

    The NAMA will encourage proper solid waste management through sharing of knowledge on composting processes and provision of extension support to households and other institutions.

    The support will include:

    • training on waste reduction (reducing the amount of municipal solid waste produced by not creating it, through people buying only what they need) and reuse (reusing materials and packaging where possible) and recycling; (materials and packaging that cannot be reused should be recycled) by training on waste handling and how to convert waste into a marketable commodity,
    • support for selling the commodity, maintenance of an information database on activities for different stakeholders,
    • and a sharing board to create transactions as well as creating a platform for recycling investors as well as solid waste management companies.
