|Industrial waste management is also seen as an important area for capacity-building in Niger. Above all, authorities require funding for the procurement waste management equipment. The public sector is generally in short of these funds, while the private sector possesses limited equipment. However, industrial waste treatment by the private sector is often done only in wealthier areas where inhabitants can afford the costs. Industrial waste poses a significant health and environmental hazard in less developed areas of the country. The private sector should therefore be more integrated into industrial waste management. Coordination and partnership between the private and public sector can also be attempted. There exists legislation addressing industrial waste, prohibiting the import of hazardous industrial waste (n°89-24, 1989), and monitoring its generation in the country (n°66-033, 1966). It could be improved, however, if enforcement plans were to be developed.
