City in an LIDC/EDC: How is one initiative making the city more sustainable?

For each city investigate one initiative to make it more sustainable, such as use of brownfield sites, waste recycling and transport improvements.

Lagos State Integrated Waste Management Project

This initiative is trying to improve sustainability by reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfill sites and reducing the air pollution landfill causes.

The World Bank is financing a project to collect waste from markets to turn into compost.  This reduces food waste in landfill which reduces methane emissions.  The compost is used to fertilise farm land, increasing food production.

Methane that is released from the rubbish dumps is being used to generate electricity for lighting in the markets and housing
