Terms of Reference
OPERATIONAL RESEARCH TO EVALUATE THE FACTORS INFLUENCING LOW UPTAKE WASTE MANAGEMENT PRACTICES IN PER-URBAN AREA OF ILALA MUNICIPALITY – DAR ES SALAAM
Background
Dar es Salaam is the country’s largest industrial and commercial centre with an estimated population of more than 4 million (2012) with a population growth rate of 4.3 percent and population density of around 2,700 persons per km². More than seventy percent of the population lives in unplanned and under-serviced areas of the city.
It has been estimated that 4,200-tonnes of solid waste are generated in Dar es Salaam per year. This represents a generation rate of 0.93 kg/cap/day based on a population of 4.5 million (2016 projection). It is estimated that Dar es Salaam will be generating over 12,000-tonnes per day by 2025.This represents a tripling of the waste generated in just 14 years.
The Dar es Salaam Local Authority (DLA) has also estimated that less than 40% of the total wastes generated in the city are collected and disposed of in the Pugu dump site or otherwise recovered. The remaining wastes (approximately 60%) are either dumped by the road side or into drainage canals contributing to health problems for local residents, annual flooding events and methane generation. Much of the waste quantities that are not collected are from unplanned and highly populated areas of the city.
