This project was carried out through two sub-activities:
- Activity 1: Assist the government of Kenya to promulgate a national legal framework that creates an enabling environment for sustainable solid waste management in Kenya
Effective waste management requires a national enabling legal framework that facilitates and incentivizes good county-level waste regulations and practices. Under this sub-activity, Kenya was able to draft and adopt a National Solid Waste Management Law. CCAC assisted in the drafting of a model county/municipal solid waste management regulation to complement the above law, together with a roadmap for implementing Kenya's National Solid Waste Management Strategy.
Throughout this project, one of the aims was to maximize South-South exchange through consultations, and comparative analysis, bringing the lessons learned and best practices from South Africa, East Africa, and Latin America to bear to help Kenya advance more quickly and effectively.
As a part of the project to fulfill this aim, waste management experts from the South African National government participated in a workshop held in Nairobi, with Kenyan federal and municipal government colleagues to discuss key elements and approaches for the National Solid Waste Management law to advance its drafting in the first quarter of 2017.
- Activity 2: Accelerate implementation of solid waste management actions through technical and legal drafting assistance to one pilot county
During this sub-activity, to pilot policy improvements and approaches for accelerating project implementation, one county with high mitigation and replication potential was selected strategically. This was done in collaboration with the national government, taking into consideration local capacity, SLCP mitigation potential, as well as national government priorities. A rapid assessment was conducted to review existing data and analysis, identify critical data gaps, review the main barriers to project implementation and provide an initial list of projects identified as a priority by the local authorities.
CCAC then provided technical and legal drafting support to the selected county to tailor model regulation developed under the national policy work to local county circumstances. Promising areas for project implementation under the county/city regulations were identified for further collaboration and technical support and a case study was developed.
