The Koshe-Reppie Dumpsite Rehabilitation Project was introduced in 2018, following the fatal collapse of the landfill at Koshe in March 2017.
The rehabilitation project, initiated in 2018, was made possible through the financial and technical support of the Government of Japan, amounting to USD 2.4 million, and active involvement from the Addis Ababa City Administration and the UN-Habitat. This 36-hectare landfill, which had served the city for over half a century, witnessed a transformation driven by international cooperation, increasing its control level from no control, to limited control, as defined by the Waste Wise Cities Tool (WaCT) methodology.
