Willingness to pay of the households to a waste management improvement in the precarious districts of Abidjan (Ivory Coast)

Abstract : This paper is among the first scientific approaches trying to explore the significant factors that influence households' willingness to financially take part into programs of domestic waste management improvement in Abidjan's precarious districts. Our methodology consists of directly asking households whether they are willing to financially contribute to the project or not. If so, how much they are willing to donate. Our first results from probit regression analysis indicate that households are well acquainted with the necessity to improve waste management; nonetheless they are less keen on bestowing money. Our study has revealed original results. It allows us to calculate the income elasticity of willingness to participate in the implementation of the project and shows that the coveted funding modality by households is the integration of a tax in the current fee.
