Abstract

This study dealt with Local Resources Mobilization towards Sustainable Solid Waste Management in Tanzania: A Case of Kinondoni Municipality, Dar es Salaam City. It was motivated by the fact that, regardless of various programmes which have been initiated in order to address the challenges of urban solid waste management, scanty literature exists on the relevance of bottom-up approach in local resource mobilization towards sustainable solid waste management. In order to fill this gap a new study was conducted in Kinondoni Municipality Council. I effect, the study revealed that top-down approach alone is not capable of mobilizing enough resources for facilitating sustainable solid waste management. Hence, the need for integrating both top-down and bottom-up approaches to solid waste management, where local community participation as a key dimension, was confirmed and recommended by the study. To this end, the study provides policy recommendations on five key issues, namely: institutionalising the policy framework for local resources mobilization, networking and mobilisation of local actors, supplementing conventional approach in municipal service provision, effective solid waste management cost recovery, and compliance with the waste hierarchy principle in contracts design. It is expected that, the study findings can inform decision-makers, practitioners, academicians, local community workers, the private sector, industries, development partners and other beneficiaries on the relevance of local resources mobilisation towards sustainable solid waste management.
