Project: Establishing City Network for Sustainable Waste Management

Funded by: Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC)


The objective of this project is to develop a focused network for the regions of Southeast Europe, Middle East and Central Asia to foster outreach to municipalities and to harness the demand for improved waste management technologies and approaches as well as SLCPs mitigation within the cities.

SeSWA will assist the network cities identify, propose and implement bankable and sustainable waste management projects in order to reduce climate change impacts and improve human health and the status of the environment.


The key activities that will be undertaken are creating the city network and conducting two workshops with the cities in the network.

  • Creating the city network: SeSWA will reach out to the city representatives from the selected cities to obtain an expression of interest to join the city network. During this period, an expression of interest will also be collected from funding institutions and a detailed conversation will take place to find out about their capacity/limitations to invest into waste management projects in the regions. These funding agencies will be invited to participate actively in the network and mentor the network cities.

  • Conducting the first workshop: The workshop will be organized in Novi Sad, Serbia at the University of Novi Sad, where an official network launch will take place and stakeholders will have the opportunity to meet and network with each other.

  • Conducting the second workshop: The second workshop will seek to assist cities develop a financial workplan. It will be tailored around cities who have managed to complete technical assessments for projects and are ready to seek financing. SeSWA will use resources developed by the CCAC MSWI and seek participation by potential funding agencies to ensure that the cities have not only technically viable, but also financially viable projects.
