The Gambian government, represented by the Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, and Natural Resources (MECCNAR), has officially entered into a collaborative agreement with the Senegalese National Organization for Sanitation and Waste Management (SONAGED) to enhance sustainable waste management practices.

This significant partnership stems from a productive bilateral meeting held between The Gambia and Senegal during the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, on December 7, 2023. Both nations are pleased to announce this groundbreaking initiative, which aims to address waste management challenges effectively.

“Following a fruitful bilateral meeting between The Gambia and Senegal on 7 December 2023 during the 28th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP28) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the Gambian Ministry of Environment, Climate Change & Natural Resources (MECCNAR) and the Senegalese National Organization for Sanitation and Waste Management (SONAGED), are pleased to announce a groundbreaking partnership in sustainable waste management,” the ministry said.

Inspired by Senegal’s successful waste management strategies, MECCNAR, in conjunction with The Gambia’s National Environment Agency, will tap into SONAGED’s expertise. The goal is to develop a comprehensive waste management system that modernizes The Gambia’s approach, emphasizing sustainability and efficiency.

This collaboration represents a positive step toward cleaner and more environmentally responsible waste practices in the region
