46248-001: Mainstreaming Integrated Solid Waste Management in Asia | Asian Development Bank

Regional: Mainstreaming Integrated Solid Waste Management in Asia

Sovereign (Public) Project | 46248-001 Status: Closed

Strategy 2020 identifies infrastructure and environment as two of the five core areas of operations and private sector development and private sector operations as one of five drivers of change. Solid Waste Management (SWM), one of the most neglected areas of municipal infrastructure in Asia is a pressing need of most of DMCs to help attain environmental sustainability and enhanced quality of life for its citizens. The TA with its crosscutting infrastructure and environment focus fits well with ADB's policy. The TA also links well with Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) of several DMCs that have identified sanitation and waste management as a key area of assistance for their urban renewal. ADB's participation in SWM in DMCs though have been opportunity based. In past 10 years ADB has participated only in about 10 projects in the SWM sector and total annual waste handling through ADB financed projects has been less than 10000 tons per day.

Description Strategy 2020 identifies infrastructure and environment as two of the five core areas of operations and private sector development and private sector operations as one of five drivers of change. Solid Waste Management (SWM), one of the most neglected areas of municipal infrastructure in Asia is a pressing need of most of DMCs to help attain environmental sustainability and enhanced quality of life for its citizens. The TA with its crosscutting infrastructure and environment focus fits well with ADB's policy. The TA also links well with Country Partnership Strategy (CPS) of several DMCs that have identified sanitation and waste management as a key area of assistance for their urban renewal. ADB's participation in SWM in DMCs though have been opportunity based. In past 10 years ADB has participated only in about 10 projects in the SWM sector and total annual waste handling through ADB financed projects has been less than 10000 tons per day. This quantity of waste is less than the solid waste generation in a single large city in Asia. It is thus evident that ADB needs increase its effort to help DMCs develop holistic citywide SWM strategy and translate those into technically feasible and commercially viable projects. This TA is a major step in this direction.
Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy Lack of funds and technical skills with the municipal bodies to develop and implement environmentally sound methods of waste management is the main constraint in SWM. Private sector participation that can infuse funds, technical skills and operational efficiencies is a key prerequisite for addressing the problem. Such participation in SWM sector though has been limited to waste collection and some landfill operations. The SWM in DMCs traditionally have been a gap filling exercise with little or no element of proactive planning. The TA addresses both of these issues and will help plan long term solution to SWM and help the municipalities garner private sector participation to mobilize much needed financial resources in the sector. The TA will create structures that can be used on a replicable basis for ADB projects in the DMCs; help develop waste management strategy for four major cities and develop model bidding and contract documents for inviting bids in SWM.
Impact More Asian cities implement sustainable SWM strategies
Project Outcome
Description of Outcome City governments in CSCs adopt sustainable SWM strategies
Progress Toward Outcome
Implementation Progress
Description of Project Outputs

1. 5 CSCs selected based on criteria prepared and applied for such selection

2. A 20 25-year strategy prepared for sustainable SWM practice in 5 CSCs

3. Action plans prepared for SWM projects in the CSCs

Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)

CSCs included Buriram and Mahasarakhan, Thailand; Quezon City and Sorsogon, Philippines and Mandalay, Myanmar. In country presentations and workshops were held in each city to develop and confirm action plans and address policy reform issues. A final workshop was held in January 2017 in Bangkok.

A series of project briefs were prepared consisting of 40 SWM topics as well as 5 city case studies.

The TA completed all activities in March 2017 and financial closed 30 June 2017
