As part of the on-going Iraq Public Sector Modernisation programme, Geopolicity conducted a detailed preparatory sectoral assessment for the Integrated Solid Waste Management sector, assessing key structural constraints and entry points for subsequent engagement. The preparatory assessment was crucial for understanding the policy, institutional, human resource capacity, fiscal, service delivery and decentralization status of many sectors of the national economy, in order to inform future functional re-structuring work.
The overall objective was to lay the foundation for future sectoral reform, including reforms in Human Resource management, and restructuring work of ISWM aiming at strengthening service delivery and decentralization to shape and inform the work of the I – PSM / WATSAN Task Force. Working with Central and Regional Ministries, hosting national workshops,
a final sector reform road map and investment program was developed.
Sample design and implementation of a household perception survey, which assessed solid waste management services provided by the public and private sectors in Baghdad, Basra and Erbil. Interviews with public and private service providers. Identified investment schedules, and supported the development of a regulatory regime, improved waste management planning, implementation and overall service delivery.
Throughout this project, Geopolicity integrated full economic and financial costs and benefits of alternative waste management systems including legal and institutional frameworks. Furthermore, Geopolicity supported the development of investment schedules, the development of a regulatory regime, awareness raising amongst the public and stakeholders, and improved waste management planning, implementation and overall service delivery.
