Project
Waste management is a major challenge in developing countries, where municipalities Africompost project suggest treating this problem through the development of units for composting organic waste in 6 African cities. Sorting and composting improve the local management of domestic waste. Furthermore the production of compost supports the development of local agriculture while creating jobs for underprivileged people. Moreover, the selling of both the compost and the carbon credits will provide financial sustainability to the composting units.

The Africompost project aims at setting up the organic waste composting in 6 major African cities.
Following a first project developed in Mahajanga (Madagascar), Gevalor and GoodPlanet are going to replicate this approach in 6 African cities including: Lomé (Togo) and Dschana (Cameroon). Four other sites of composting, located a priori in Benin, Tanzanie and Madagascar will progressively be integrated, depending on their progress.
In each of the considered countries, Gevalor and GoodPlanet are working with the municipalities and the civil Society
organisations to set up the composting units.
The composting unit is part of the waste management policy defined by the local government. The latter provides collection of waste and the land put at disposal for the composting. It is the owner of the installations and equipments of the composting unit. The local operator (civil society organisation) manages the composting unit; it makes people
aware of composting and promotes it to the farmers.
With proper follow-up and trainings, the local composting operators will be fully autonomous after 4 to 6 years. They will master not only the preparation and selling of good quality compost, but also the follow up of the methane emissions, necessary for the generation of carbon credits. These two sources of revenues will allow a financial balance of the
operations. The transfer of abilities established by GoodPlanet and Gevalor will then allow the local partners to replicate the experience in other towns by themselves.

Length of the project: 4 years (September 2011 to August 2015)

Project is financed by the French Development Agency (AFD) and the French Fund for the World Environment (FFEM).

The Consortium: GoodPlanet - Gevalor - Etc Terra

  • GoodPlanet is a French Foundation recognized of Public Interest acting to make peopleaware of the environment and educate them about it. With its program Action Carbone,GoodPlanet developed specific skills in carbon engineering for community-based projectswith strong environmental, economical and social benefits.
  • Gevalor is a French association, created in 2004 and developing solutions for wastemanagement, which are adapted to the specific conditions of the developing countries.Gevalor supports its local partners in the development of their projects and in the access tothe carbon credits in order to allow them to reach a technical and financial autonomy.
  • Etc Terra is a French association, created in June 2012, working in close collaboration with the GoodPlanet Foundation which delegates the monitoring of the project to Etc Terra.

Benefits
Environmental benefits: Each composting unit will allow the composting of 12 000 tons of waste each year, which will contribute to the sanitation of the city and will avoid the emission of the equivalent 150 000 tons of CO2 over ten years.

Economical benefits: The yearly produced compost will allow the natural fertilization of 1000 ha and will reduce the farmers' dependence on imported fertilizers.

Social benefits: Each composting unit will create more then a hundred direct jobs.

Durability: The selling of the compost and of the carbon credits will insure the durability of the unit and its related benefits.
