Maldives - Solid waste (English)

The Republic of Maldives, a nation consisting of over 1,000 coral islands in the Indian Ocean, is known for its white-sand beaches, pristine environment, and thriving marine ecosystem. But its waste management practices were threatening both the environment and its tourism industry garbage was either dumped in the ocean or burned off with diesel fuel. To address this problem, the municipal government of Male turned to International Finance Corporation (IFC) to introduce best practices in solid waste management, with participation from private-sector investors. The transaction closed in May 2011.
