The project Emergency Monrovia Urban Sanitation 2AF has changed to Active. To see more information, see the project information in the World Bank project database The development objective of the Emergency Monrovia Urban Sanitation (EMUS) Project for Liberia is to increase access to solid waste collection service in Monrovia. The additional financing (AF) will sustain and scale up EMUS Project achievements. It will also provide an opportunity to implement recommendations from a recently completed options study to enhance Monrovia city corporation's (MCC's) revenues from waste fees and other sources. AF will extend for twenty eight months EMUS support to key solid waste management activities such as: (i) secondary collection of waste including operation and maintenance of existing transfer stations; (ii) operation of existing sanitary landfill, including the leachate treatment facilities; (iii) operation and management of the weighbridges installed at both transfer stations and at the landfill; and (iv) performance of periodic independent environmental audits. The project implementation unit (PIU) responsibilities will be transferred to the waste management, finance, and other departments of MCC. It will also allow for the implementation of the recommendations of the options study that the Government of Liberia (GOL) decides to adopt.
