The EBRD is helping the City to improve its SWM system which has suffered from many years of underinvestment.

Objectives:
- Institutional strengthening of the SWM sector, including:
- Supporting the Company''s capacity building and corporate development programme to ensure sustainability of its operations and its ability to meet the EBRD''s loan covenants.
- Development and implementation of a structured approach to raising public awareness to encourage source-separation, recycling and resource efficiency.
- Minimising the adverse impact of the project on the vulnerable section of the population with a focus on ensuring equality between men and women.
