Ethiopia Launches Intervention for Green Cities

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Government of Ethiopia have officially launched a new intervention that will enhance the linkage between urban waste management and greening six cities around the country.

State Minister Admassu Nebebe from the Ministry of Finance and Economic Cooperation (MoFEC), at a signing ceremony of a new project, noted that Ethiopian cities have faced critical challenges in the management of solid waste value chain and in implementing and sustaining urban green infrastructure.

The urban climate change mitigation program, known as Creating Opportunities for Municipalities to Produce and Operationalize Solid waste Transformation (COMPOST), has received close to USD 7 million from the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and UNDP.
