EU Cooperation with Mali - hygiene and waste management project in Bamako, Mali

293 views

In the capital Bamako, with 2 million inhabitants, authorities are overwhelmed by the waste management. Improvised dumps as high as mountains over looked the city. People throw their waste there; others send their cows grazing in the waste piles. Improvised recycling agents, some very young, try to save what can be sold. 'High Impact Training', a €300,000 programme financed by the EU has allowed to improve the situation. Over 400 recycling agents (have been) will be trained for waste management (in the last two years) until the end of 2013 by SNV Netherlands Development Organisation, a Dutch NGO, funded by the EU and other international agencies. They collect the waste from household, sort it and sell directly what is recyclable to local factories.
