Technical advisory mission - Final Report

Community based waste collection and small enterprise development waste recycling in Dar es Salaam

ILO wants to enhance the employment opportunities of waste collection by supporting CBO's and small scale recycling enterprises. A number of recent studies (e.g. by ILO 1997, JICA 1996 and SDP/DCC 1996 and 1997, see Annex 1, list of references) provide data on the composition and quantity of waste generated in Dar es Salaam, current practices of waste collection and recycling, past and future policies, major constraints and the kind of support needed to overcome those constraints.
A technical advisory mission was therefore requested.
