West Africa's Current Waste Management Challenge
Major West African cities are drowning in waste, and its ongoing adverse health, environmental and economic impact is an existential crisis for the people. State and local governments lack the resources to develop the necessary plans and infrastructure to address these problem
Key Waste Management Challenges in West Africa*
*50% of waste generated annually from sub-Saharan Africa is from Nigeria | 60% of waste is collected and taken to unmanaged waste dumps | 40% of the population have access to sustainability electricity | 55 years is the life expectancy at birth 
Solving West Africa's Waste Problem
We create cost-effective, scalable, decentralized solutions that tackle the most critical, immediate, and long-term waste disposal needs. AWG’s approach creates effective and efficient solutions faster and more jobs than any current solutions on the market.
How We Do It
The partnership’s initial focus is on developing adequate best-fit disposal facilities and associated management planning. We combine education and community awareness programming for the wastes overflowing the streets of major urban West African cities. The disposal facility can either be a composting solution, anaerobic digestion, landfill gas-to-energy, or a thermal-based (incineration) waste-to-energy facility.
