(Regional Council of Matam)

Matam is a region of the North East of Senegal with a population of 496,207 inhabitants. The Regional Council Matam is the local authority with legal personality and financial autonomy. The Council's mission is devoted to the development of the population of the region from the economic, social, cultural, educational, environmental and health point of views. As many regions in Africa, Matam suffers directly the consequences of the lack of sustainable management systems and face the existing barriers for their implementation.


Main role in the project

The authorities of the Regional Council of Matam, developers and implementers of waste management strategies in their own territory, will be involved in the definition of the criteria and subsequent evaluation of policy background, governance, socio-economic structure, main barriers for the implementation of ISWM systems as well as the identification of key stakeholders. They will participate in the identification of requirements for the implementation of ISWM systems and will collaborate in the development of the guidelines for the selection adapted ISWM systems and their implementation. MATAM will also give support in the development of policy guidelines and recommendations and will be responsible for carrying out a case study in which the authorities will analyze the feasibility of implementing the measures suggested in the course of IWWA in their own territory.
