NAMA Seeking Support for Implementation

  • A Overview
    • A.1Party
      A.2Title of Mitigation Action
      A.3Description of mitigation action
      The NAMA proposes implementation of four (4) core activities namely;
      (i) increasing the collection and disposal of municipal solid waste up to 80% by the year 2030 in Lusaka, Kitwe, Ndola and Livingstone;
      (ii) promoting 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;
      (iii) improving 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;
      (iv) installation of sludge digesters for each of the mechanical treatment plants as follows: 2 in Lusaka, 4 in Ndola and 1 in Kitwe for electricity generation.
