Asian Development Bank Approves $73m Finance to Develop Waste Treatment Facility

Asian Development Bank has approved a $73 million loan & grant to the Maldives to develop a waste treatment facility using waste-to-energy technology and disposal infrastructure for the Greater Malé region and neighbouring outer islands.

The project will be a pivotal component of an integrated solid waste management system, which will improve public and environmental health, especially ocean health.
