India: Berhampur Solid Waste Management

PPP Brief

The municipal solid waste management system in Berhampur, a city in the Indian state of Odisha, is inadequate to meet the needs of its population and is not in compliance with national regulations. With little to no primary waste collection in about half the city, many
citizens, mainly in low-income areas, are exposed to health risks resulting from pollution, water contamination, and untreated solid waste. The Department of Housing and Urban Development of the Government of Odisha and the Berhampur Municipal Corporation,
seeking an affordable solution for delivering improved waste management services to its citizens, turned to IFC to help structure a PPP transaction and attract a private operator to improve the efficiency and management of the system. The concession agreement was signed on August 30, 2013.
