In the past couple of years, the District Autonome d’Abidjan (DAA) has witnessed unprecedented population growth. 13 communes currently make up the District of Abidjan, for a total population of 5M. This surge resulted in an increased demand for basic services like waste management. Current collection centers are indeed overflowing, and open dump sites are proliferating, worsening public health and causing safety hazards.
The consortium setec énergie environnement / Terrabo is developing the strategic waste management masterplan (WMMP) in Abidjan, Ivory Coast. The project falls under the city’s Program for the Development of Sustainable Sanitation and Drainage Practices (PADSAD). The city of Abidjan aims to both increase the waste collection rate from 70% to 90% and rehabilitate all illegal landfills. This project is fully in line with the sustainable development objectives taken at the national level.


Our services include the following:
- Baseline study: demographic, social, environmental, institutional, and economic assessment
- Assessment of existing waste management practices
- Development of 3 scenarios on waste collection, treatment, and recovery
- Detailed analysis of the chosen scenario
- Feasibility study and detailed design of future treatment facilities
