    • Status: In operation

    ICLEI South Asia with the support of Meghraj Capital Advisors Private Limited (MCA) has conducted a techno-commercial feasibility study document to understand the investment economics and evaluation of various options for street light energy efficiency implementation using different models. This will be followed by preparation of a tender document for public private participation to improve street light infrastructure. The existing street lighting system is based on inefficient sodium, metal halide, CFLs and fluorescent lamps and a large number of them burn out frequently due to poor street lighting infrastructure and electrical distribution network for street lights. This compromises the safety and security of citizens of Panaji and tourists in evening and night hours. . The annual energy consumption for street lighting is 3.80 Mus and electricity cost is Rupees 126 lakhs. The operations and maintenance cost for the year 2014 is approximately Rupees 121 lakhs.
    It is important that the city streets are well lit and are designed and implemented as per the national lighting standards with the right aesthetics. Since Panaji is a heritage city and a very popular tourist destination in the country which attracts many national and international tourists across the world it is recommended that the illumination levels in the city areas should be ideally greater than existing average illumination levels. The CCP therefore intends to improve the existing street light infrastructure with the help of private sector participation

    Panaji: A Journey towards Successful Waste Segregation Leading to a No- Landfill City - Corporation of the City of Panaji
    • Start year: 2003
    • Type: Public Participation/Stakeholder engagement
    • Status: In operation

    Innovative leadership by the Commissioner of Panaji resulted in the campaign “Bin Free in 2003”, as an initiative to improve municipal solid waste management system in the city. The key elements of the program were:
    • Door to door collection of segregated waste (dry waste and wet waste) for the entire city of Panaji along with the introduction of service charges
    • Substitution of community bins by trolley bins along with automated truck-loading systems
    • Program for recycling of all recyclable waste and composting organic waste.
    The Corporation involved volunteers and local leaders to create awareness regarding segregation of waste at the household level. Trained volunteers; predominantly school/ college students visited individual households to practically demonstrate waste segregation. To begin with, green and black coloured bins were sold to households at subsidized rates. The households were sensitized towards importance of segregating kitchen waste from other waste. Green bins are used for wet waste and black bins are used for dry waste. The bins came with a screw system which reduced the chances of tipping over by stray dogs and cats. These bins were specifically designed for use in Panaji. Due to public interest generated and given the situation where the city had no other solution for waste management, both the community and political leaders supported the initiatives of the Municipal Corporation of Panaji.

    A Journey Towards a Successful Waste Management System Leading to a Landfill-less City, Panaji - Corporation of the City of Panaji
    • Start year:
    • Type: Audit / Assessment
    • Status: Completed

    The Corporation of City of Panaji (CCP) has initiated an extensive waste segregation and management program which involves four-way waste segregation for commercial establishments, as well as residential units. Apart from this, bio medical waste and wet waste was collected separately. It therefore became necessary to document the waste management activities.
    The documentation report features the two-way and four way segregation methods and the waste collection systems and routes in the form of lists and maps outlining collection of dry wastes and wet wastes in different zones. It also features the locations of all composting stations, bin shelters, sorting centres and black spots in the city, with a brief on their operation methods as well. This documentation is intended to provide a reference for Panaji and a guideline to waste management to other cities.
    Key Outcomes-
    100% collection of segregated waste from the households as well as further sorting at
    the recycling stations in 8 streams of waste.
     Active involvement of ragpickers, women volunteers/ SHGs.
     Improved recycling efficiency through market creation and tie-ups.
     Minimized waste to landfill through effective management.
