Helping cities to create bankable projects for municipal solid waste management
This is a report from the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) Finance Workshop that was held on September 10-11, 2015, in Paris.
The event targeted cities supported by the CCAC and intended to help them with identifying financing opportunities to improve their solid waste management and reduce SLCP emissions. Five cities participated from developing countries, Buenos Aires, Argentina; Cebu City, Philippines; Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; Amman, Jordan and Battambang, Cambodia, and helped to frame discussions and expert advice by posing questions and presenting their own case studies. Additionally, Kenya has been represented on the National level.
