Executive Summary The sectoral GTP has set a target to construct 358 landfills and improving collection coverage to effectively utilizes the landfills and improves the sanitation of cities in the country. Moreover, the sector has also targeted to construct 50 compost centers during the GTP period. Therefore, this project greatly helps to achieve the sector’s GTP target. In the national CRGE, the urban sector has identified establishing proper solid waste management system as a major lever for GHG emission, which this project directly conforms. Improving the collection and transportation coverage and system, segregation and composting would considerably reduce the direct GHG emission from the illegal disposed by treating the collected waste at the disposal site properly. Avoiding the randomly disposed waste in different parts of the town that is threatening the health of the community would totally reduce health risks creating climate change resilient urban community. Proper waste collection will also avoid the reproduction of pathogenic organism that would threaten the health of the residents. The project will have also economic importance by creating job for the youth, women and the disadvantaged groups of the community. The main objective of this project is to establish a demonstrable pilot community based urban waste management that builds on the local knowledge of communities to enhance the capacity for an integrated development. The key activities of the project are training on solid waste management, building solid waste transfer station, compost preparation site selection and construction, and procurement of related equipments. The estimated cost of the pilot project is 190,669 USD
