  3. 3. AGID project in a nutshell • Goal: demonstrate the viability of a new integrated waste management model based on recovery. • Location: 3 wilayas around Oran. • Budget: 11 Mio € (Belgium) + 1 billion Dinar (Algeria). • Duration: 3,5 years • Beneficiaries: national waste agency, local authorities, waste operators and citizens. • Key ideas • Focus on management tools and equipement • Integration: chain of actions needed to recover value from waste • Learning loops between 3 wilayas and Belgian partners.
  4. 4. Situation in Algerian secondary cities • Population almost tripled between 1966 and 2008. 86% of the population lives in towns that are capital of wilaya or municipality. • Need to protect coastal areas already under high anthropic pressure (63% of the population lives on 4% of the territory). • Need to create new areas for industry development across all the country • Algerian authorities are willing to invest in technologies to enhance the quality of life in cities.
  5. 5. Household waste challenges in Algeria • Lack of data management and planning capacity • Few support from the population to keep cities clean and sort waste while new consumption patterns are emerging • Collection of household waste is not efficient and coherent • Lack of infrastructure to collect and sort household waste • No specific funding for waste management • Impacts from landfills are less and less accepted • Build a consensus on who does what. It includes the recognition of civil society role. • Few industrial capacity for waste recovery but private investors could invest if supply is guaranteed. • No treatment facility for hazardous waste in Algeria
  6. 6. Drivers for inclusive economy • The current situation “all wastes to landfills” cannot be sustained any longer. • Waste is not only a matter of public cleanliness. People are becoming aware of environmental threats • The country needs to reduce import dependency and create new jobs for young people. • The creation of new towns in Algeria could be an opportunity to showcase innovative waste management models that are integrated in a new city concept. • Waste management could pave the way for a social contract between the state and citizens
  7. 7. How did the project respond? (1) 1. National waste Information systems 2. Awareness rasing kit 3. Collection of household waste
  8. 8. How did the project respond? (1) 4. Building three waste sorting facilities (15 tons / h) 5. Building three compost platform (5.000 sq M) 6. Support to landfills operation
  9. 9. A few points for discussion • Integration: how far do we need to go ? • How to cope with economic and industrial realities? • Projects tend to become more organisational than technical. Are we ready for that ? Do we have the right project methodology and tools? • How to promote learning and innovation? • Uptake by national partner remains a big issue.
