The Final Conference of IWWA (Integrated Waste Management in Western Africa) was held on 14th to 15th May 2012 in Accra, the capital of Ghana under the title: “Pathways towards Integrated Waste Management in Western Africa”. D-Waste attended this conference, after the kind invitation of “Zoomlion Ghana” (www.zoomlionghana.com).

Integrated Waste Management in Western Africa (IWWA) aims to establish and promote Integrated Solid Waste Management (ISWM) systems in Western African countries by empowering all stakeholders participating in the waste management chain, through:

·         the reinforcement of institutional and legal frameworks and

·         open transfer of knowledge and technology.

This initiative required high participation levels from the interested parties and focused its activities on 4 target countries:  Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria and Senegal, which constitute a representative sample of Western African countries. Through the outcomes of these case studies, IWWA also seeks to provide synergies for the establishment of ISWM across the region while raising public awareness.

The main objective of IWWA was to promote the establishment of Integrated Solid Waste Management systems (ISWM) in Western Africa by developing the appropriate management policies and implementation strategies for ISWM at national and regional levels while gathering authorities, policy makers and other stakeholders in the process.

General objective of the Conference was to bring together members of the IWWA consortium jointly with national and regional decision makers, Solid Waste Management professionals, NGOs, civil society Associations and the scientific community to present the results of the project and discuss future trends and directions concerning the large scale implementation of integrated Waste Management in West Africa.

As it was presented, main achievements of the IWWA project are:

·         Regional evaluation of the Solid Waste Management situation in the targeted countries;

·         Assessment of lessons learnt from technological/organizational best practices in Europe and non European countries;

·         Guide for selection of adapted ISWM systems in Western Africa;

·         Guide for implementation of ISWM systems in Western Africa;

·         Guidelines for implementation of policy strategies in ISWM;

·         Policy briefs for the development of National and Regional Action Plans in Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria and Senegal.

D-Waste interviewed Mr. Mirko Hänel (TTZ Bremerhaven – Germany), General Coordinator of IWWA. In the following video, Mr. Hänel describes the objectives of the project and provides its main conclusions, suggesting that implementation of the project’s outcomes should begin immediately.
