|Description||The proposed Solid Waste Management Sector Project (SWMSP) will improve solid waste management (SWM) in the Philippines by assisting local governments with investments in related infrastructure complemented by capacity development technical assistance.|
|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy||
Urbanization and increasing concentration of people and business activities has led to a dramatic increase in solid waste production, while its proper treatment and safe disposal remains problematic. Investments in SWM will help improve the quality of urban environmental conditions, public health and competitiveness of cities and tourism destinations. It will support the Government in achieving the environmental targets of the Philippines Development Plan (PDP) 2011-2016.
Despite the mandate of Republic Act (RA) 9003 (Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2001), the countrywide closure of open dumpsites, with few exceptions, is outstanding. Currently there are less than 30 sanitary landfills (SLF) available in the Philippines, and in many urbanized areas garbage collection remains incomplete. The full implementation of the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act, especially improved waste collection, the provision of sanitary landfills and the closure of existing dumpsites, is required to solve the problem.
Because of the substantial investment required for properly engineered disposal facilities (i.e. sanitary landfills), the project will promote partnerships among neighboring LGUs to develop cluster facilities (i.e. regional landfills), shared among various LGUs, thus achieving economies of scale and supporting operations to become more financially viable. Partnerships with the private sector will be encouraged as a means to improve collection, treatment, and disposal of wastes.
