Advancing Sustainable Waste Management Projects in Ecuador and Chile

CCAP, in partnership with the Climate and Clean Air Coalition’s (CCAC) Municipal Solid Waste Initiative (MSWI), is working with the municipalities of Quito, Ecuador and Puerto Varas, Chile to support the implementation of sustainable waste management projects that reduce short-lived climate pollutants (SLCP) emissions in these cities.

The ultimate goal is to provide each city with technical, on-the-ground support to move from policy to action in the waste sector. By developing implementation plans, CCAP is helping Quito and Puerto Varas reach a ready-for-implementation stage of selected organic waste treatment projects.
