    I received an email today from a doctor whom I have worked with in Pakistan (2001-2003)  who is interested in engaging members of this platform in discussion aimed at helping women in remote, rural settings improve the health profile of their villages. 

     

    Since building awareness and understanding of SDGs, and bringing new players to the table are my passions, I sent her an invitation to join this community, and expand upon this topic.  Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 3 (Good Health and Wellbeing); 5 (Gender Equality); and 17 (Partnerships) will clearly be included in this discussion, but having traveled in FATAs near Peshawar along the border with Afghanistan, the need for projects that relate to almost all the SDGs are needed in this area.

  • GPOBA Webinar on Results-Based Financing for Municipal Solid Waste

    Hannah Michael Hughes Posted Jan 17 2018, 5:00 AM

     

    In cities around the world, waste generation rates are rising and with them the urgent need for effective waste management systems. No where is this need more apparent than in low income countries where the lack of infrastructure and funding dedicated to solid waste management has significant health and environmental consequences.

    The Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA) hosted a webinar that explored how results-based financing (RBF) can improve municipal solid management and address disparities in systems that often exclude poor and marginalized individuals.

    Hosted by Marcus Lee, a Senior Urban Economist with the Social, Urban, Rural, and Resilience Global Practice (SURR) of the World Bank, and moderated by Yara Salem, a Senior Infrastructure Specialist with GPOBA, the webinar examined seven case studies that utilized results-based approaches to solid waste management.

    A municipal finance expert with substantial experience working in solid waste management, Marcus argues that the fundamental challenge facing the solid waste sector is financing, and more specifically, the “sustainable financing of operations.” Through his exploration of case studies in Nepal, the West Bank, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Tanzania, and Jamaica, Marcus presents RBF as an approach that offers a sustainable solid waste management solution for local governments.  

    In addition to the case studies, Marcus offers lessons learned from his work in the municipal solid waste sector, as well as best practices on using RBF in solid waste management. Marcus’ presentation is followed by a thoughtful question and answer dialogue between Marcus, Yara, and webinar viewers.
