The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) in collaboration with various stakeholders will develop an Integrated Community-Based Solid Waste Management System in Two Selected Areas in Khosoos and Khanka cities in Qalyubeya Governorate in the Greater Cairo Region. The project will be executed through the Participatory Development Programme in Urban Areas (PDP), an Egyptian-German development program implemented by the Ministry of Economic Development (MoED) and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH (GIZ) with financial assistance from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). The four-year project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and managed by GIZ through the support of Qalyubeya Governorate aims to encourage community participation in the management of waste services, promote the value of waste as a resource and improve living and working conditions for the urban poor working on the provision of waste services.
