      Tangeni Haimbala, Helmine Egokom Agulaba Ambi
Abstract: This paper aims to give an analysis of solid waste management (SWM) performance of two coastal cities in Africa, Limbe (Cameroon) and Walvis Bay (Namibia). The authors present detailed challenges as well as management analysis, including waste collection, waste disposal, waste generation, and waste composition. A comparative study is taken from the waste management of Austria particularly the city of Vienna. In both cases, effective governance and policy framework are key. Namibia practices a form of public-private partnership (PPP) through tendering to handle the waste. Cameroon just like Namibia also practices PPP with the company HYSACAM, leading Cameroon private municipal solid waste management operators.
