Component 3: Development of regional SWM facilities

The component will finance regional SWM infrastructure investments including (a) regional processing and recycling facilities; (b) regional construction and demolition (C&D) waste management facilities; (c) transfer stations and regional sanitary landfills for municipal solid waste disposal; and (d) closure/remediation of existing waste dumpsites and development of incremental disposal cells as interim safe disposal facility. Such regional interventions will provide the necessary downstream infrastructure to enable linkages for upstream SWM value chain supported under Component 2. In addition, this component will finance the biomedical waste management facilities to expand the state’s capacity to deal with increased volumes of biomedical waste in the context of COVID-19. The regional infrastructure will be planned, designed, implemented and managed in compliance with environmental and social safeguards, in line with the KSWMP’s ESMF and PIM
