The EBRD is providing a 25 million Euro sovereign loan to the government of Moldova to finance critical investments in its solid waste management infrastructure and to address pressing environmental challenges.

The loan is part of a wider financing package, with the European Investment Bank (EIB) providing an additional 25 million Euro sovereign loan as well as investment grants from international donors.

The project is the first large-scale undertaking in the solid waste management sector in Moldova involving multiple regions and an important step towards a sustainable solution for solid waste management services. The EBRD’s investment will support improvements in the solid waste management system of three Waste Management Zones under Moldova’s Solid Waste Management Strategy.
