The Kanifing Municipal Council (KMC) in partnership with Peterborough City Council (PCC) in the United Kingdom and the economic development agency Opportunity Peterborough have signed a 3-year project with the European Union. Today, Mayor Talib Ahmed Bensouda met with Ambassador Corrado Pampaloni to sign the agreement.
The Kanifing Environmental Transformation Programme (KETP) aims to use a sustainable focus on new integrated waste management approaches to drive environmental, social and economic transformation in Kanifing. The project will help to transform waste management in Kanifing Municipality from a pollution, health and environmental challenge into a sustainable and sustained economic opportunity.
KETP has three output areas: (i) Waste Management, (ii) Education, and (iii) Tree Planting & Parks Management. Some of the interventions related to Output 1 include community transfer stations, bins for waste collection, diversion of various waste streams, and investments to accelerate the transition of Bakoteh dumpsite into a transfer station. Under Output 2, KETP will establish the first-ever municipal library for the benefit of students and young entrepreneurs in the green economy. Finally, Output 3 will focus on enhancing public park infrastructure including children’s play areas, along with tree planting across the 19 wards of the municipality.
