Abstract

Local initiatives to create sustainable urban solid waste management play a key role. The sustainable urban development programme in Ethiopia was initiated by the municipality of Addis Ababa as part of urban governance strategy in 2004. The strategy was developed to meet the growing need for rendering this service in a sustainable manner. Since then, institutional arrangements have been undergoing significant shifts in Addis Ababa solid waste collection system. With respect to formal sector service delivery, changes have focused on decentralization of solid waste collection service to local government and the introduction of private sector service delivery. At the neighbourhood level, community-based initiatives are also becoming increasingly prominent as a means of addressing the deficiencies of the formal system. The effects of microprivatisation have been evaluated.
