In recent times, Jos metropolis has witnessed a rapid increase in the numbers of NGOs involved in environment related interventions..This study is aimed at analysing the perspectives of NGOs involved in solid waste management initiatives in Jos metropolis and the main causes of solid waste management problems with a view to providing relevant data on these parameters that would hopefully facilitate collaboration with relevant local and international development partners on environmental issues. Using purposive sampling, 115 NGOs were identified in the study area and questionnaires administered to all of them. The findings revealed that thirteen major causes of the persistent solid waste problem in Jos metropolis are lack of prompt collection and disposal of wastes from collection points by responsible government agency (10.9%); inadequate equipment/materials (9.8%); lack of an all-inclusive/participatory solid waste management framework in use (9.2%); attitude of residents/public (9.1%); low/lack of community participation (8.9%); inadequate funding by government (8.6%) and low/lack of NGO participation (7.6%). The study also identified five major challenges facing NGOs in their work as follows: Government policy not creating room for NGO participation (28.0%); inadequate funding (23.2%); lack of continuity in government policies (19.6%); less interest by NGOs in solid waste work (16.4%) and violence/conflict in Jos (12.8%). It is recommended that the Plateau State government should consider the NGOs as partners in progress and adopt an all-encompassing frame work that allows for their active participation and all relevant stakeholders in the various environmental activities embarked upon by the responsible government agencies. By bringing the NGOs to the table, government would benefit from their reach-out and mobilising power, innovative approaches, wealth of experience and skill set and accountability and transparency among other things. Similarly, other local and development partners with interest in environmental management need to assist the NGOs by partnering with them through funding, technical support, research among other things.
