Addressing an urgent challenge for the citizens of Amman, the EBRD and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) are financing a new cell at the Ghabawi landfill, the main disposal site for solid waste from the Jordanian capital.

The new cell will increase the capacity of the repository by 11 per cent and will be located next to the four existing units. The facility was built by the Greater Amman Municipality (GAM).

To date, the EBRD has provided 67 million Jordanian dinars (€82 million) in loans to the city alone and the Bank is working with other donors, including the European Union (EU), who have extended an additional 19 million Jordanian dinar in grants.
