Project context, objectives and description
Building off GGGI’s work with local governments during 2017-18, GGGI and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation established an investment partnership designed to integrate climate action and inclusive sanitation at local and national levels in Nepal. The Green Sanitation Services Program was officially launched in July 2019, in coordination with the Ministry of Water Supply, Ministry of Forests and Environment, Mahalaxmi Municipality and Bagmati Metropolitan City, as well as other stakeholders.
During 2019, GGGI initiated the major programmatic activities including the development of a USD 50 million national biogas program, designed to utilize fecal sludge; the integration of sanitation targets into Nepal’s Nationally Determined Contribution; the preparation of a comprehensive suite of policy interventions to improve the ease of doing business in the sanitation sector; and the development of green citywide inclusive sanitation plans for Mahalaxmi Municipality and Bharatpur Metropolitan City.
This project is aligned with IO1. Strengthened national, sub-national and local green growth planning, financing and institutional frameworks and IO3. Improved multi-directional knowledge sharing and learning to empower local and external agents necessary to drive green growth processes in partner governments
