Fritz Ntone Ntone (photo), the government delegate to the Douala City Council, chaired on 28 March a workshop to restore the project document of the market structuring program Sludge, the Government Daily said.

The program, it is said, aims to organize a market around the 1300 m3 of sludge produced daily in the economic capital, of which barely 50% is actually treated; In order to generate energy for households and thus protect the environment.

Although the initiative is generally appreciated, the discussions between the program’s stakeholders stumble over the mobilization of the funding needed for its implementation. While some advocate the collection of a sanitation tax, others point to the possibility of public-private partnerships, which would then involve local authorities, households and companies engaged in the drainage sector.
